Westwind Big Band


Contact us at:


If jazz is the original, quintessential, American art form then the Big Band is one of its most exciting manifestations. It swings and it rocks, it whispers and it can knock you back in your chair. One thing it won't let you do is sit still while listening!

The Westwind Big Band is an ensemble formed primarily of members of the Hopkins Westwind Concert Band. Many of these members have been playing jazz as long as they've been playing their horns. Although the 18 piece ensemble follows classic instrumentation and plays many standards of the 'Big Band' era, we believe that era never ended and love to add in some of the great, new, big band music from this century as well.

Over the last few years the band has been found all over the Twin Cities from Special Events to Music in the Parks. Come see us at our performances listed below. See you there!


Hope to see you at our upcoming concerts below!
