Kingwood Big Band

Organized in the fall of 2004, the Kingwood Big Band is a collection of adult musicians sponsored by Lone Star College in Kingwood, Texas and the Kingwood Musical Arts Society. Band members include students, engineers,medical professionals, music educators, and businessmen drawn together by a mutual love of classic big band jazz.

Boasting a large repertoire of music made famous by such Big Band era luminaries as Duke Ellington, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Tommy Dorsey, and others, the Kingwood Big Band is gaining regional acclaim for exciting performances and dances.

Houston Mayor Bill White and the members of the Houston City Council recently honored the Kingwood Big Band with a declaration designating October 27, 2006 as Kingwood Big Band Day.
