The Compaq Big Band, featuring vocalist Rebecca Holtz has performed for events and venues in the New England area since 1975, including a tour of Great Britain in the summer of 2006. They start with a repertoire that begins with honoring both the instrumental classics of the greatest big bands of all time and vocal numbers such as those popularized by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Bobby Darin, Frankie Randall, Nancy Wilson and Diane Schuur. They then complement these arrangements with the best swing charts from the 50s and 60s from the likes of Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson, and continue right up through the hottest big bands of today such as Tom Kubis and Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band. To repeat, they’ve been growing strong for 37 years– you owe it to yourself to see (and hear) why!
