Baby Chart (do do do do do do)

Hey everyone! It's been a while since the last blog post ๐Ÿค”ย Just wanted to let you all know that weโ€™ve been working on some new things.

Weโ€™re mostly known for performing swing and Big Band music, which is still true and always will be, but weโ€™ve been adding a few related pieces and genres to our playlist. We are adding songs like Sweet Caroline, Last Night by Memphis legends the Mar-Keys, lots of Latin/salsa songs, and some more old favorites like Nat King Coleโ€˜s version of Unforgettable. These songs are going in the song book for Jeremy Shraderโ€˜s Octocats, my eight piece big band. We are not trying to become a soul dance or cover band, lots of great bands have that covered and are doing well, just for some that may want a bit more variety of music for their event, while staying classic and true to our roots.

Our new additions will pair nicely with the classic big band and swing sounds that we are known for and are not too far outside of that genre. Of course, if you prefer, we can keep things swinging all night and stick to the jazz. Some more of the new songs added are listed below. Don't see your favorite? Maybe we'd like to add it, just ask.ย Hope to see you out on the dance floor!
