The Jimmy Stahl Big Band
Founded in 1977, the Jimmy Stahl Big Band has headlined tours, and performed extensively throughout Ontario, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Building on the success of their first big band gospel show and album, “Swingin’ in the Pews”, the band recently added “American Songbook”, and “Sounds of Sinatra”, showcases featuring male and female vocalists. Incredible music from the big band era is captured within fresh arrangements of big brassy blues, and classic jazz standards.
The Jimmy Stahl Big Band has had the honour of collaborating with a variety of Grammy Award and Dove Award-winning artists such as Ralph Carmichael, Dave Boyer, Phil Driscoll, Ron Kenoly, and Kathy Troccoli. Some of these collaborations were in-studio recordings, while others were live tapings of television specials that aired on NBC, TNN, Global and CTS television networks. Individually as sidemen, band members have worked with legends Doc Severinsen, Tom Jones, Debbie Boone, Pat Boone, Vic Damone, The Yellow Jackets, and Ray Charles.
This summer, join audiences across Southern Ontario and the GTA as they enjoy a nostalgic journey back into time with the Jimmy Stahl Big Band. Confirmed upcoming performances at the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival, Big Band in the Park in Woodstock, and the Brantford Jazz Festival.
Stay tuned for new album releases this Fall!
