An eight-member line-up that is able to equal an entire big band in sound; this is a truly striking musical manifestation in theNetherlands. The name of this wonderful company, that brings its own grand piano to each performance, is Tiny Little Big Band
. It only takes the band twenty minutes to get ready to play. This will seem like a useless bit of information, but it is exactly what this group of musicians is all about. No hassle with cords, amps or electronic doodahs. Just an honest, clear acoustic sound and the challenge for a relatively small line-up to present music as if it were played by many musicians. Whether they are the stylish crooning songs by Sinatra or the Duke Ellington repertoire, all is brought to the audience with the swing of a complete big band, dress suits included.
