Joe Clarke Big Band

This is the traditional instrumentation that has been in use since the Big Band era of the 30's and 40's.


"Joe Clarke Quartet did a spectacular job at our wedding. We were very happy with the music, which was appropriate throughout the reception. I remember only superlative comments from our guests, who were thrilled with the music and thought our choice of jazz was very refreshing and unconventional (the latter in a good way). We had not made any explicit requests, nor placed anything on the do-not-play list, and the guys really went along with this wonderfully. They figured everything out and it was not necessary for us to give any additional direction during the event (which is great, because we had our hands full with everything else that was going on)...We are very greatful for their music, and we thank them for their time."

Joe Clarke Big Band

This band has it all. The big sound of a 13 horn section. 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, and 5 saxes. This is the traditional instrumentation that has been in use since the Big Band era of the 30's and 40's. The rhythm section consists of an upright bass, drums, piano and guitar. For this very special group Joe steps from behind the piano and joins Jenna Brinson front and center to croon out the tunes that made famous the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Tony Bennett and Sammy Davis, Jr. Jenna Brinson, in the last year of joining the band, has proved to be an integral part of the band's image of sophistication and class. Jenna really knows how to light up the stage with her singing ability and poise. Many years in musical productions has prepared her very well for the task of entertaining. This group promises a very special musical experience for you and your guests. Their tune selection will keep the dance floor full all night. They alternate swing, latin, waltzes, ballads. There's never a dull moment with this band on stage
