Led by one of today’s best Big Band drummers and consisting from musicians and singers which span several states, the Andrew Thielen Big Band is one of the most sought after bands of its genre — locally or anywhere.
With a wide array of players the band delivers the tremendously powerful sound of three trumpets, three trombones, four saxophones, piano, bass, guitar, drums and multiple singers all catered to make dancers want to move.
This old-school act not only plays the songs of yesterday but also new songs and fresh, new arrangements of old songs.
The group has played across the area and traveled the country with clients that include the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, Betty White’s Animal Foundation, the Greenbrier, Family Circle, PBS, Charleston Place and more.
