SU All Stars Big Band

Swing Unlimited All Stars Big Band

Swing Unlimited All Stars Big Band is the result of musicians, past and present, from within the Swing Unlimited Big Band Group - plus special guests - coming together for an 'All Star' performance. Many accomplished musicians have performed in the SUBB Group and continued to refine their skills at different music colleges around the country and abroad.  What better way to begin than to play a Tribute to Count Basie and his Big Band.
