The Georgia Big Band consists of 17
instrumentalists and two vocalists, all professional musicians
from the Middle Georgia area. Organized in 1988, this regional
band originated out of the Dublin Jazz Band and was renamed
the Georgia Big Band in 2001 as they mustered musicians from
all over Middle Georgia. The musicians come from varied
backgrounds such as band directors and former military
musicians. Dedicated to preserving the big band tradition and
bringing quality music to the public, the band comes together
regularly to perform music they love, which includes a wide
variety of musical styles, old and new. The band has performed
for a diversity of functions since inception; including
colleges, art associations, concert series, civic functions,
weddings, dances, churches and private functions.
