Lakeshore Big Band

The Lakeshore Big Band has been entertaining audiences throughout West Michigan for over 25 years, developing into one of the area’s finest concert and dance ensembles.

Based in Spring Lake, MI, the LBB is a full-size (17 piece) traditional big band. The music they perform comes from a large library of tunes from the early days of jazz to present day, including great hits from the big band era by Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and more, as well as contemporary jazz, ballroom dance and popular music.

In addition to frequent weddings, dances, parties and fundraisers, the group has made regular appearances at summer concert series throughout West Michigan and has been a regular feature at the summer dance series at the Grand Haven Waterfront. Highlights have included an appearance at Muskegon’s Summer Celebration and the Association of Concert Bands annual convention.
