We're a 17-piece big band with a great female singer, a band like the one Johnny Carson had on "The Tonight Show." Some people describe us as a "1940's style big band." We've just started working with "Take Note," a dynamite vocal quartet which sings in the style of The Pied Pipers and The New York Voices. Take Note, along with our fabulous female singer really make for a great performance. We do the tunes which over time continue to be popular, tunes like "When I Fall In love," "Teach Me Tonight,"I Got Rhythm," "In The Mood," Almost Like Being In Love," The Girl From Ipamena,"At Last," "Night and Day,"and "Laura." In our repertoire are the hits from the swing and big band era, the songs made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Nat and Natalie Cole, Etta James, and Frank Sinatra, to name a few. If you like the standards which have stood the test of time, you'll like The Cigar City Big Band. We perform in full tuxedo unless you request otherwise and with us, everything you hear is LIVE! There are no canned tracks or sequences. Our five saxes, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, drums, and bass are working hard to back our singer and it shows!

As part of my college's yearly performing arts series one of our acts was Moscow Cats Theatre. When the Cats' bookings were cancelled I was faced with a hole in my schedule. A friend mentioned the CCBB and I decided to book them. Never have I been more clever! CCBB was very professional, Lee Farrell a pleasure to work with, and the performances of both band and vocalist were heavenly. I got requests for them to return here, and received many compliments on them. THESE cats made everyone forget about the original four-legged cats that were originally scheduled. CCBB is welcome back at LCCC anytime! Mark Kirby, LCCC

From the very first contact with the Cigar City Big Band right through their spectacular performance last night, I was impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. We kept in constant communication during the planning, and they followed the schedule we set for them the evening of the event perfectly. They are a very talented and enthusiastic group of players with an excellent sound and feel for the music. We had so many compliments from our guests. They made the evening!!! I will definitely hire them again Lucia Barrett All Children's Hospital Guild of Sarasota/Manatee
