Be sure to warm up your voices for a program ending sing-along. TICKETS ARE $20 EACH AND AVAILABLE NOW!
Jazzed Up Big Band is excited to welcome former Miss South Dakota, Carol Nesbitt on vocals. You may have heard Carol with The Apostles Standards Band and Kickin’ Brass. Carol’s smoky vocal renditions of some of the season’s favorites are sure to warm the season.
Jazzed Up Big Band is a 16-piece band bringing you the most exceptional big band entertainment in the region. Our home is Historic Arnolds Park in the heart of the Iowa Great Lakes.
These musicians are, to the person, absolute excellent musicians! They enjoy sharing their gift of playing for you and continue to expose live big band music to as many people as possible. And, they all realize what a gift it is to be able to play music and play it to the highest standard they are capable. That permeates everything we do as musicians, and we try never to take that for granted. Some of the talented musicians in the band are CJ Kocher, Brian Hanegan, Ryan Hofer, Rick Ayres, Ken Hoyne, Jeff Soukup, Justin Kisor, Mike Andersen, and others.
