Pony Boy All-Star 'Mini' Big Band

A six-piece version of the full All-Star Big Band. This smaller band has performed at the swankiest of events, from the Bellevue Art Museum and Fred Hutch Auctions to weddings for the stars - and is perfect when the full big band is just too much of a good thing, but still want an elegance and some energy.

Three horns (trumpet, sax and trombone) with bass, drums and piano. We can add a vocalist with custom arrangements to give you the full flavor of Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgereald, and all the classic big band sounds in a small package. Perfect for a medium-sized room with the full tux look and a classy sound.

The Pony Boy All-Star Big Band is a conglomeration of the best regularly playing professional musicians in the Seattle area. more...

This band can set the scene for a black tie affair, with smooth swinging sounds and the classic sharp big band look! Add a vocalist for a truly authentic performance. And of course they play the modern big sounds with flair and energy...
