Music: Big Bands of the 30's and 40's
Location: Dallas, Texas
With a vision to recreate the sound, the look, and the mood of the Big Bands of the 30's and 40's, Steve Lallier's Tuxedo Junction offers a refreshing and authentic musical recreation of the swing era. This 20 piece band will put you, "In the Mood" to "Jump, Jive, and Wail"!
The band's musical library includes all familiar big band favorites, played in the same rich, full ensemble arrangements that make listening and dancing to this music so exciting. With the current popularity of swing dancing, the band's program will be enjoyed by all ages.
Tuxedo Junction is certainly a 'dance band'. Every tune is arranged for dancing. From swing to latin rhythms, including all ballroom styles, Steve can put together a program designed specifically for your event.
Carl "The Chiken" Murr is the band's arranger and lead trombone player. For special requirements, arranging is available. If your event or program demands a specific song with a certain feel and sound, Tuxedo Junction can deliver it! You can have exactly what you want!
Their stage presentation, including 'tuxedo-clad' musicians, serve up an image that will confirm the romantic, sentimental, and memorable mood associated with the days of the big bands. Zoot suits come out on occasion, too!
