Lakeshore Big Band

The Lakeshore Big Band has been entertaining audiences throughout West Michigan since 1990, 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 band performs from a large library of tunes dating from the early days of jazz to present day. This includes 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 appearances at Muskegon’s Summer Celebration, Grand JazzFest, West Michigan Jazz Society, Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival and the Association of Concert Bands annual convention.

"...a good swinging ensemble and high level of musicianship."
"...one of the most popular dance bands in Michigan."
