THE BEES KNEES BIG BAND is a great option for your next event. "Music From The 40's 50's & 60's, ALL THE GOOD STUFF"

If a full Big Band is not in your budget, or space is limited, we have an option for you. Tommy Burnevik's One Man Band is a cost effective option and may make sense if you don't have the space or budget for a full band. Either way, Tommy Burnevik's Tenor sax and vocals with his 9 piece big band or his one man band will be great entertainment for your event.

A bit about Tommy: At the age of 18, he was jamming at the local Minneapolis blues clubs. He would show up, jump on stage and wail on his sax. Tommy was quickly recognized as a soulful blues player with a unique raunchy style.

He joined The Lamont Cranston Band and recorded several projects with them including the first album featuring Tommy's sax playing on great tunes like "Aint nobody here but us chickens". In the course of playing with Lamont Cranston, he had many musical adventures, one of which was a trip to Chicago where he played with Blues greats including Koko Taylor, Sunnyland Slim and Howlin Wolfs Band to name a few.

After 4 years with Lamont Cranston, he formed his own 9 piece swing blues band called "THE BEES KNEES BIG BAND". His vocal style and honkin & screamin tenor sax was sure to get you off your seat and on your feet. Recognized as one of Minnesota's top ten bands, Tommy Burnevik and The Bees Knees Big Band was a guaranteed good time.

Tommy then joined the 80's rock band The Suburbs. With deep roots in the Blues, his sax playing on tracks like "Love is the law" added a cool twist to an awesome edgy rock band.

Now, Tommy Burnevik's THE BEES KNEES BIG BAND is back and we're lovin' it!

Tommy Burnevik has performed and/or recorded with many groups including:
Howlin Wolf Band, Prodigy, Dean Magraw, Flaming O's, Hot Rod, Lamont Cranston, Joel Johnson, Elvin Bishop, Asleep At The Wheel, The Pistons, The Bees Knees, The Hoop Snakes, Dan Aykroyd, Kim Wilson, Lynwood Slim, The Suburbs, Soul Asylum, Johnny Lang and more.

Tommy was fantastic. He made the party an incredible event. He came with a friend that played the guitar and we all enjoyed it very much. People were dancing to his music. Would recommend and hire again at another event for sure!

I am the Activity Director for Copperfield Hill Assisted Living and Tom Burnevik performed here yesterday. He was amazing the residents here loved him! The first thing I heard when I came in the next morning was when can we have him back. Residents were all up dancing to the great swing music. Thanks Tommy!
