Chad Rager (ray-gr) is the Drummer/Bandleader of the Chad Rager Modern Big Band. When you hear him play, he immediately evokes memories of the greatest. . . Gene Krupa, Louie Bellson and Buddy Rich. By drawing from the big band heritage of the legends of jazz and updating the sound and instrumentation for today, Chad and his band the Chad Rager Modern Big Band create a "21st Century Groove".

Naming the band the "Chad Rager Modern Big Band" reflects the fact that this band is not confined to traditional big band selections, but that it is confident enough to venture out into rock and funk selections as well. The guiding principal of the band is the "groove", smooth tasteful sounds that appeals to listeners ears."

Rager's arrangements will introduce you to old friends, only all spruced-up. Familiar, but new. Loved for its familiarity but appreciated in its new incarnation.

"A truly impressive performance"
Donald Eichelberger Jazz USA

If you enjoy most of the styles that jazz can take, Chad Rager offers several "flavors" to choose from, and you won't be disappointed.

"Every song we select has affected me in a musical and personal way. I feel blessed to be able to perform them!" Chad Rager

******

From Chad Rager-
"You will notice a name change from Chad Rager Groove to
Chad Rager Modern Big Band.

The original name for the band was "Chad Rager Modern Big Band"
which reflected my deep appreciation of the great Big Bands and Modern Jazz Funk Horn Bands.

It's time to call the band what it really is...
THE Modern Big Band!
