Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: July 15, 1961    

One of the most popular big bands in Chicago during the 1980's and 90's was the Deja Vu Big Band. Now, several veterans of that group have come together once again to form the Stardust Big Band. Led by veteran multi-instrumentalist and arranger Jon McGahan, the Stardust Big Band is dedicated to promoting and continuing the jazz traditions as practiced by Maynard Ferguson, Neal Hefti, Bill Holman, and Quincy Jones among others. This 13- piece ensemble combines inventive writing with vibrant solos by some of Chicago's finest big band practitioners.

From a night of dancing to a casual club date to concerts and shows, the Stardust Big Band can perform a myriad of styles in the jazz idiom with the swing and excitement both casual and discerning jazz audiences expect and deserve.
