MEET THE BAND

My name is Rick Brunetto, I am the leader of the Rick Brunetto Big Band. I brought this jazz orchestra to life 30 years ago as a means of preservation of the big band sound. Over a span of these years, the band has performed countless shows and stage performances.

We play traditional tribute shows to classic American singers, but also perform shows with a contemporary selection of funk, fusion, blues, rock and pop music.
