About the Band

Did you know “American Idol” & “Dancing With The Stars” both use big bands? Why? Because it makes all music sound great. That was what Andrew Thielen knew when he started this big band in the 90’s. Andrew wanted everyone to hear the difference live horns , great musicians and great singers could make to music.

When you watch “American Idol” or “Dancing with the Stars” the music feels alive and exciting and it can make your heart soar. The Andrew Thielen Big Band has the same feel. Musicians give dance music energy. We present numerous singers and styles of music to keep everyone jumping, rocking, swinging, ballroom dancing, and getting close with the slow dances too.

The leader of this Big Band is Andrew Thielen, one of today’s best Big Band drummers. Just wait until you hear him play. Great drummers make dancers want to move.

 

The Big Band itself is made up of the finest musicians and singers in several states. We play the greatest songs of yesterday and today all with the tremendously powerful sound of three trumpets, three trombones, four saxophones, piano, bass, guitar and drums. Plus we carry a minimum of two but sometimes use three or four singers.

Are other Big Bands the same? No. The Andrew Thielen Big Band plays new songs and fresh, new arrangements of old songs. No other big band in the country does this. This Big Band is a professional big band. It’s all we do. We spend thousands of dollars each year on our music, equipment, wardrobe and our talented players to keep it hip! That is why the House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, Betty White’s Animal Foundation, the Greenbrier, Family Circle, PBS, Charleston Place and more use us. Contact Us about your big event now!
