This is a GENERAL ADMISSION show.  The DANCE FLOOR will be open!  The balcony is a great option for those would prefer to sit and watch performance.

It’s time to dust off and polish up your dancing shoes! 

The New London Big Band will be swinging with old and new tunes, notes from the Roaring 20’s to some old school takes on contemporary favorites, including some brand new compositions by the band members.   The Dance Floor will be open, and we encourage patrons to come in their best Gatsby themed 20’s garb… though you can come as you are just the same!

About New London Big Band:

Led by trombonist and composer Sean Nelson, the New London Big Band is a 17-piece jazz orchestra made up of the finest musicians in New England. The band plays a mix of classic jazz standards, upbeat dance tunes, and original music by band members, and regularly features instrumental and vocal soloists. Formed in 2016, they play monthly to sold out crowds at the Social Bar + Kitchen in New London, where they attract professional and amateur dancers from near and far. 

The band wants to show the world that big band jazz is a vibrant and joyful sound that is not just for “jazz aficionados.” The Day of New London calls them “a stellar outfit celebrating the greatness in exuberant fashion.” Thanks to their loyal fan base, the band won “Best Jazz Band” for CTNOW’s Best of Hartford.
