In its 15th year, The Rancho Santa Big Band, founded by the late Professor of Music, Jack Wheaton, and produced by trumpeter Dominick Addario MD is a 17 piece swing orchestra of the highest quality dedicated to the preservation and performance of the music of the “Greatest Generation” also known as the Swing Era. Conducted by Dave Murray, this swing orchestra is big, bold and performs the remarkable vintage arrangements of the talented musician/composers of the 1930’s and 40’s in a club atmosphere of tables and a bring-your-own appetizers and beverage.

The line-up includes some of the finest musicians in Southern California including Bob Mathes, Les Kepics, Robbie Smith, Tom Brawner, and Chris Klich. Members have played with Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Jimmy Dorsey and Glenn Miller, and have backed up greats like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, Peggy Lee and more. Band vocalist and event coordinator, Marie Addario adds her soulful sound to the ensemble.
