The Notables Swing Band

Playing the Great Swing Music from the Big Band Era


The big band era comes alive whenever The Notables Swing Band plays the great swing music of the 1930's - 50's. We are a 17-member band in Central Oregon that provides rousing live big band music for dancing and entertainment. Our playlist also includes a big variety of more recent favorites, all played with the traditional full sounds of a classic big band.
