Stage Door Canteen - Wedding and Corporate Band
- Based in:
- Based in Woods Hole,MA
Let our Big Band bring that swingin' era of music back to life, playing the hits and sounds of the '40s as well as jammin' out to the contemporary tunes of today.
At the heart of Stage Door Canteen stands a massive 12-piece horn section. Drawing energy not from a synthesizer or turntable, but from the wind and spirit of twelve real musicians, there is no other experience like a great American big band; it will awaken something primitive in your DNA. Our highly trained career musicians have spent three decades performing together and this classic ensemble includes some of Southern New England's premier musical talent.
A musical tour de force, Stage Door Canteen hits an audience with everything: from the unmistakable jump-swing of the early big band era, to the blistering arrangements of the latter day big bands, to horn-band standards by Chicago EW&F and Tower of Power, to the Latin sounds of Tito Puente and the Mambo Kings, to the fiery Celtic strains of pipes and whistles, to hip-shaking Motown, to unbelievable reinventions of radio hits by Van Morrison and the B52s.
Fresh energy, polished professionalism, and pure energetic excitement mark every Stage Door Canteen show, from it's monthly residency at Liam Maguire's Irish Pub, to fine hotels on Cape Cod and beyond to Dublin, at Ireland's most noted jazz hub, The Sugar Club. The Stage Door Canteen is guaranteed to satisfy audiences from every generation, so bring the big band sound to your special event, concert, festival, or venue and nothing will ever be the same.
