Big Band music from the heart
Reunion Big Band is a unique showstopper for events, weddings and parties. What kind of music we play?
We can tailor the set from a great number of songs, ranging from swing, jazz, funk and groove to even waltzes. See below to get some ideas of our sets. We are happy to discuss more!
We also organise concerts of our own. These concerts are mainly in the Helsinki Metropolitan area, but we have also played in other parts of Finland as well as abroad.
Swing Night with Ellington
Duke Ellington is one of jazz music's all-time greats. During his 50-year-long career, Ellington composed thousands of scores. This set gives a glimpse of his virtuosity in mastering different styles and moods, with songs like Half The Fun and KoKo, featuring Martti Vesala (trumpet) and Tobias Andersin (vocals).
Count Basie Jazz Club
Count Basie is a legendary big band bandleader, jazz pianist and composer. Through his impeccable music, such as Cute, Basie Straight Ahead and Jumpin’ At The Woodside, Basie was a primary shaper of the big-band sound that characterised mid-20th century popular music.
Soul & Funk Mega Party
Want to dance all night? With 13 horns, 4 vocalists and a rhythm section we hit the stage with greatest hits of funk, soul and disco music by artists like Aretha Franklin, Tom Jones and Stevie Wonder. This set is for party animals, hosted by our fantastic vocalists SoulSisters and Tobias Andersin.
Beloved Pop Ballads
Burt Bacharach is one of the greatest songwriters of the 20th century. His powerful pop ballads, including hits like What the world needs now, Anyone who had a heart and Alfie, are now performed by Reunion Big Band with newly arranged big band versions. With our shining vocalist Iina Salin, join us to take a nostalgic trip to the past.
