The Little Big Band Group led by Bruce Dedrick, is available for all types of parties and affairs, including weddings, corporate and club dances, church festivals, summer concerts and venues of all sorts. The group consists of six musicians: Trumpet, Sax, Trombone, Keyboard, Bass and Drums. Our musical repertoire, especially strong in swing era music, is extensive and versatile, and our musicianship is second to none. We have the ability to expand by adding a female vocalist and/or an accordionist, and can even become a larger big band ensemble depending on the needs and budget any affair. We also have a Band/DJ combo which combines the best of both of those worlds to appeal to the tastes of all guests. For wedding ceremony music we offer a unique ensemble combo of Trombone and Bassoon.
