Biggles Big Band Amsterdam

Biggles Big Band Amsterdam

Biggles Big Band is a jazz orchestra from The Netherlands conducted by Mr Adrie Braat (musician of the renowned Dutch Swing College Band) that plays music from the great swing era, recreating the magical sounds of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and jazz singers like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. The orchestra consists of 5 trumpets, 4 trombones, 5 saxophones, guitar, piano, acoustic bass, drums and a male vocalist. An extra string quartet consisting of 2 violins, viola and cello adds a sensational musical experience to Biggles Big Band.

From the day of its foundation in 1985 until today, Biggles Big Band is a smash-hit. The band is based in Amsterdam and performs every Monday night at the famous café Casablanca, located right in the heart of Amsterdam. Nowadays, there are not many big bands playing jazz music from the swing era, therefore there is a big demand from all over the world to listen and dance to this kind of jazz music. Thanks to the high standard of musicianship and spontaneity of Biggles Big Band’s members, their energy floats off the stage to mix with the audience. Wherever Biggles performs they get a tremendous response from the audience, not a single concert is without clapping, dancing or stamping feet!
