19 Piece: This band has it all. The big sound of a 13 horn section. 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, and 5 saxes. This is the traditional instumentation that has been in use since the Big Band era of the 30's and 40's. The rhythm section consists of an Upright Bass, Drums, Piano and Guitar. For this very special group Joe steps from behind the Piano and joins Jenna Brinson front and center, to croon out the tunes that made famous the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett and Sammy Davis, Jr. Jenna Brinson, in the last year of joining the band, has proved to be an integral part of the band's image of sophistication and class. Jenna really knows how to light up the stage with her singing ability and poise. Many years in musical productions has prepared her very well for the task of entertaining. This group promises a very special musical experience for you and your guests. Our tune selection will keep the dance floor full all night. We alternate swing, latin, waltzes, ballads...In other words... Never a dull moment with this band on stage.

9 Piece: This band utilizes all of the musical elements of it's 17 piece counterpart. The same rhythm section is used; Upright Bass, Drums, Piano, and Guitar. Then we add an Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone. The harmonies and fullness of a larger group are present but this band comes in a handy travel size for your convenience. The instrumentalist have been selected from the best that the Charleston area has to offer. Many of them hail from other parts of the country and bring there own unique qualities to the group. Joe Clarke sings and plays the piano. He has also arranged many of the tunes in the book. Jenna Brinson compliments the stage with her sophisticated vocal style and stunning beauty. Jenna and Joe have also worked together on 5 musical productions at the Village Playhouse since 2001. The 9 piece Big Band songlist was created to reflect the best of the big band era.

Quartet, Trio, and solo piano with vocals also available.
