The Gainesville Big Band began as the Gainesville Community Jazz Band. Since 2007, the band has brought big band jazz to Gainesville and the surrounding areas. The GBB is a 18 piece jazz band that plays a wide range of big band styles such as traditional swing, dance, latin, and contemporary jazz. The musicians have a deep passion for jazz and a commitment to presenting quality performances to all audiences in Gainesville or wherever the GBB may travel.
The Gainesville Big Band, under the direction of Marco Thomas, announces that we will perform at the Gateway City Craft Beer and Wine Festival in Lake City, FL on Saturday, February 27. Music starts at 1:30.
