Lakeshore Big Band

The Lakeshore Big Band (formerly the Lakeshore Jazz Ensemble) has been entertaining audiences throughout West Michigan for over 20 years, developing into one of the area's finest concert and dance ensembles.

Based in Spring Lake, Michigan, the LBB is a full-size traditional big band consisting of 5 saxophones, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets, piano, drums, bass and guitar. The music we 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.

 The LBB specializes in ballroom dance repertoire including swing, foxtrot, Latin, polkas, and waltzes.

Where We Play

In addition to frequent weddings and dances, the group has made regular appearances at summer concert series in West Michigan communities including Lowell, Montague, Fremont, Edmore, Hudsonville, Ravenna, and Muskegon. Highlights include a performance at Muskegon Summer Celebration; fundraisers for the West Michigan Symphony, the Frauenthal Center for the Arts, and Muskegon Rotary's Grape Escape; the Grand Haven Waterfront dance series; and featured guest appearances with the West Michigan Concert Winds and the Channel View Winds.
