The Hawke’s Bay Jazz Club Big Band
This will be a fantastic opportunity to see Hawke's Bay's very own Jazz Big Band as part of the inaugural Gemco Jazz, the free summer concert Jazz series

History
The Band was reformed by Ernie Rouse in 1991, and the tradition of big band swing music has been preserved, playing for local and national Balls, Concerts and Festivals.

The Musical Director and Manager of the Big Band are appointed yearly by the Hawke’s Bay Jazz Club Committee to organise and run the Big Band

The Big Band’s aims have always been to foster and play music of the Big Band Swing era and also to keep abreast with the modern styles that we can technically manage. We do not wish to compete at competitions but rather complement with the other Brass and Concert Bands, in our area, playing our own jazz style.

The Band is a voluntary organisation consisting of musicians from Napier, Hastings and the outer areas of Hawke’s Bay, catering for all age groups having an interest in Big Band Swing, in a spirit of friendship, commitment, cooperation and having fun.

The Big Band is an asset of the H.B. Jazz Club Inc. and has been an icon for local activities over the last 20 years playing at Jazz Concerts, Balls, Art Deco and Blossom Week festivities, plus many National Conferences held locally, to name a few.
