A premier Portland special event band, The Little Big Band plays swing jazz music from around the world, from Paris, France to Paris, Texas to the shores of Hawaii and beyond. Featuring the multilingual vocalist Natalia Burgess and multi-instrumentalist Josh Gilbert, we sing in French, Spanish, Hawaiian, Ukrainian, and sometimes even English. Mellow, smooth, and fun music for all ages. Perfect for weddings, parties, and corporate events.

The sweet and hot vocals of Natalia Burgess give the band a distinctive sound. She is a master of vocal control and skilled jazz interpretation. Bandleader Josh Gilbert plays flute, clarinet, saxophone, ukulele, and sings. Each sings in multiple languages. Sometimes they do duets and harmonies. The terrific guitarists Russ Miller and Hamody Hindi round out the lineup. We sometimes use bigger bands featuring the amazing Jeffery Reynolds on violin for larger venues.

The repertoire is a mixture of American jazz standards, French songs of the 30s and 40s, some Brazilian Bossa Nova, and surprises from diverse locales like Hawaii and Eastern Europe. That's why we call it Worldwide Swing!

The Little Big Band is a great Portland special event band. We are experienced, professional musicians who know how to make it easy for you. Whether it's a wedding, private party, corporate function, or other festive occasion, we will bring the music!
