Horns Plus Big Band

Based in Sydney, Australia, Horns Plus Big Band creates the infectious energy and distinctive feel unique to big band jazz. Our dynamic line up includes five trumpets, four trombones, five saxes, full rhythm section and female vocalist, and we can also provide smaller ensembles on request.

With this classic big band line-up, we showcase all styles of jazz, from big band swing through to contemporary big-band tunes, R&B, Motown and jazz-rock arrangements. And of course, our repertoire can be tailored to any occasion.

Horns Plus Big Band is available for weekend and evening engagements. We take bookings for all occasions, and have performed at a variety of jazz festivals, private and corporate functions, weddings, charity fundraisers and community events - including the Royal Easter Show 2012-13 and 12 appearances at the Manly Jazz Festival since 2004, most recently in 2023.
