Lake Effect Jazze Big Band

The Box Factory for the Arts is pleased to announce the return of Lake Effect Jazz Big Band to their stage. Lake Effect Jazz Big Band has become one of the premier big bands in the Midwest. The group is now in its 16th year of performing in Michigan’s beautiful southwest region. Their unique blend of traditional big band melodies and contemporary jazz arrangements are a delight to hear. This season, the band will be performing music from the classic big band libraries of jazz artists like Benny Goodman and Count Basie, and will also showcase the sounds of more contemporary ensembles and composers like Gordon Goodwin, Alan Baylock, and Quincy Jones.

The Lake Effect Jazz Big Band is committed to preserving the uniquely American art form of big band jazz. The band’s mission to “promote the art of jazz through performance, education, and community outreach” pairs beautifully with the mission of the Box Factory for the Arts. By featuring groups like Lake Effect Jazz Big Band, and through programming for the community like Saturday concerts, the Box Factory for the Arts carries out its mission of “nurturing creativity and the arts.” So come enjoy a glass of wine or local craft beer and enjoy the sounds and sights at the Box Factory for the Arts on August 27th at 7:30PM.
