Although the term big band is most closely associated with its heyday of the Swing Era (1935-1945), it is a genre that has existed from the 1920’s and continues to this day. With a musical library of over five-thousand arrangements, Full Count provides an eclectic mix of music ranging from the Swing Era classics to more contemporary jazz music, Latin, rhythm& blues, funk and rock. Regardless of the musical style the instrumentation of saxophones, trumpets, trombones and rhythm provides unrivaled harmonic and rhythmic excitement.
