The Neo Hot Jive Orchestra is a Wellington-based 17-piece jazz orchestra led by eclectic saxophonist-multi-instrumentalist Oscar Laven.

They're raging, engaging and focused on stonking performances of hard-grooving retrospective NZ-original works played with the spontaneity and delectably gratuitous improvisations of a small group.

This guerilla-style big band spews out highly danceable vibes in an enthusiastic homage to the classic big band era, and a small ever-changing selection of the best era-defining covers.

Made of 17 of Wellington's most killer musicians, this is an orchestra one ought not to miss.
