Joe Clarke Big Band

Based in Charleston SC

The quartet consists of Bass, Drums, Piano or Guitar, and Sax, Trumpet or Trombone. All of my musicians are seasoned professionals and have worked at their craft for many years with me and on their own. The Eight piece Big Band, which includes Bass, Drums, Guitar, Piano, Trumpet, two saxes, and trombone, gives you the big band feel and sound without the size and price of the 17 Piece Big Band. The 17 Piece Big Band is for those special events when nothing else will do. This band sports the standard instrumentation, 4 Trumpets, 4 Trombones, 5 Saxes, Bass, drums, Piano, and Guitar. The repertoir of authentic Big Band tunes are played with a modern edge that will have you jumping out of your seat to dance. All of these bands can serve to fill the background of your intimate affair or come to the front and get your party going and keep it going. We hope to hear from you.
