The South Jackson Street Band

The band was founded in the early 1970s by Bob Carter of Tullahoma, Tennessee. The South Jackson Street Band has established a name for itself as one of the finest Big Band repertory groups in the Middle Tennessee area. This band has built its reputation from quality performances, outstanding musicianship, and its extensive repertoire.

Bringing music of the Big Band era to life is the joy of its highly skilled professional musicians, They have championed the Big Band musical genre, offering a broad repertoire of over 300 songs ranging from Glen Miller and Artie Shaw to the music of Duke Ellington and Elton John.

The band features five saxophones, three or four trumpets, four trombones, drums, keyboard, rhythm and lead guitars, bass guitar, and male and female vocalists. Each musician has an intense desire to bring the music of the bygone Big Band era to renewed life, and to make each performance an evening of musical bliss.

You are bound to get “In the Mood” for an evening of entertainment that encourages you to get up and dance… or at least tap your feet and sing along.
