The Big Band Theory of Baltimore is a non-profit jazz band that caters to the local communities in Anne Arundel and Baltimore Counties as well as Baltimore City. We play for community events, fundraisers, fairs, bull roasts and more. Our music features a wide variety of song styles from old big band standards from artists like Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington, Classic Rock from Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, to Stevie Wonder, and much more.
We are an all adult group that is a reformation of a local big band that was established back in 1994 under the name of The Royal Knights Jazz Orchestra (TRKJO). At that time the band ran strong for 5 years under various directors and had members consisting of mostly high school and college age students. As members got older and went their separate ways, the band dissolved like most do. Now after almost fifteen years, the original founder of the TRKJO has started a new band with a few old familiar faces and a lot of new ones.
Now back we are better than ever. With a full compliment of fifteen plus musicians, The Big Band Theory of Baltimore can help make your next event a swinging good time. We will work with you no matter your budget. Large, small, or none at all, we want to entertain you as the gift of song and touching others can be a truly wonderful reward in itself.
As a non-profit organization, we operate on donations and a few small fundraisers. All proceeds are used to purchase more music, band equipment, and additional supplies needed to keep things running smoothly.
