This band is awesome... the real deal... full of Melbourne's highest calibre jazz & swing musicians performing the classic Big Band Swing numbers of the 40's! Thank goodness - at last!!

Man-o-man, I haven't heard so many of these tunes played live before. And WOW - B# executes them with finesse and precision. A true delight and very exciting! Hope Melbourne cherishes this band while it's around. God only knows how hard it must be to get a Big Band up, and keep it running, let alone a band like B#. Most of the band members are first call' musos for major TV and theatre showns.

Check 'em out on Oct 22nd or 29th. You'll love it and here's hopin they can continue for another month of Sundays into November.

Great live music!

Check out the great sounds of The Skyliners at the Petroleum Club in Lafayette, La. on January 20th, Saturday from 7:30p.m. to 11:00p.m.!!
Admission $15 singles,$30 couples.
Just went to their dance on November 25th. Was a full house of various ages from about 18 to 86 all dancing various styles; some traditional, some current and innovative.
Great sounds and fun! For their yearly schedule of six dances and to be put on their mailing list... e-mail: windband @bellsouth.net I am a dance enthusist, Glenn Miller fan, and health "nut" and I highly recommend their dances!!
