Band 4 E_med.jpg
Fresh from their appearance at The Rehoboth ‘True Blue’ Jazz Festival and their Maynard Ferguson Tribute, the Spartan Alumni Jazz Band along with leader Joe Dawson and conductor Larry Spencer are always looking for new band arrangements and concert venues. Please contact us with your suggestions at:
The SAJB was founded by St. Marks High alumnus Joe Dawson (upright/electric bass). Originally consisting of SMH alumni, the band has evolved to include 17 very talented tristate area musicians that excel at performing modern big band jazz. The band's focus is on performing challenging jazz arrangements written for some top contemporary big bands such as Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band, Maynard Ferguson and John Fedchock's New York Big Band.
