Hello and thank you for your interest in the Hollywood Canteen Swing Band.
We are an 18 piece big band playing live swing in Southern California venues with charts from the libraries of Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington, Louis Prima and many others.
These seasoned players have been performing since 1992 and bring their talent and experience from presenting swing to various Southern California venues. You may have seen our performances and our 18 piece big band, Hollywood Canteen Swing Band in Hollywood, Santa Monica or Los Angeles in venues such as Suzy Q’s in Santa Monica, The Derby, the Pasadena Ballroom, the Carpenter Performing Arts Center or at DiPiazza’s in Long Beach. The members of Hollywood Canteen Swing Band have also performed for Musical Theater West’s Concerts in the Park as well as the Long Beach Memorial Hospital’s Stramsky Steel Magnolia Fundraisers. Our venues include dances, wedding receptions, fundraisers and corporate functions.
Currently, we are continuing our presentation of our monthly Radioland Big Band Show at DiPiazza's in Long Beach. The Radioland Big Band Show is in the style of a classic radio show is a swinging jazz journey for all ages, taking you back to the time when swing and radio were king!
