WJP Big Band consists of some of the finest musicians in town, including vocalists. We have been playing at the Gallivan Center on Tuesday evenings the past two years. We also played the Utah Arts Festival 2014, Deer Valley last summer, the Salt Lake International Jazz Festival and weddings, corporate events, and other venues.
A lot of people think a big band just plays old music. Not us! We are a cosmopolitian big band! Over the past twelve years, I have built our song library to include popular songs that people recognize in rock, funk, and latin big band styles. Just to name a few….”Rolling In The Deep”, by Adele: ”Happy”, from Despicable Me: “September”, by Earth, Wind & Fire: “Man In The Mirror” and other Michael Jackson songs, and songs of Chicago, The Beatles, Tower of Power, Sting, Billy Joel, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Sinatra, and of course, jazz standards.
