Do you want your guests to say, "That was the most fun I've had at a wedding!"
Set your wedding, corporate event, or party apart from the crowd with the exciting sounds of a live, 17-piece jazz orchestra. This is music for all ages and will get your party started right with high energy dance music, sentimental ballads and classic swing tunes. We're great for Gatsby-themed weddings to get that vintage, nightclub atmosphere! We take pride in our polished, tight sound. Members of the band have played in such notable venues as Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center and the White House and artists including Aretha Franklin and B.B. King.
The New London Big Band is a 17 piece jazz orchestra, made up of the finest musicians in the Connecticut area and beyond. Instruments include saxophones, trumpets, trombones, piano, guitar, bass and drums.
Sean Nelson is the bandleader. When not playing with the New London Big Band, he works as trombonist and arranger for the US Coast Guard Band. Originally from Dallas, TX, he is a graduate of Sam Houston State University and the University of North Texas.
