Concerts

Want a sensational show for an afternoon or evening concert? Then you have come to the right place. No matter what the season or event, we are the band for you.

Big Band show: This is our traditional show with the full band and our fantastic male and female vocalists.We play a great variety of music with all ages and tastes in mind. Songs include Big band, swing, jazz, pop, motown, rock, light country, disco and love songs. We have it all. Along with the music, we have dance contests, comedy bits and music trivia to involve everyone in the show.

Big Band Patriotic show: Same as above but we add the songs that make all Americans proud. The band wears colorful red, white and blue and we usually add our terrific “Andrew’s sisters” vocalists in red polka dot tops and white skirts for this patriotic show. Songs include “America The Beautiful” as originally performed by Ray Charles and “God Bless America”. We play a patriotic medley of songs the audience can sing along with. (This is the same medley of Grand ol Flag, This Land Is Your Land, etc., as done by the Boston Pops every July 4th or Memorial day.) We also play all the armed forces theme songs (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard) and have the veterans in the audience stand for recognition and thanks when their branch of service theme is played. And of course we end it with everyone’s favorite; “God Bless The USA.”

Holiday songs and singers show: Did you know that many of the favorite holiday carols from yesterday were recorded with a big band? We can prove it to you when you hear authentic holiday versions of “White Christmas, The Christmas Song, Santa Baby, Rockin Around The Christmas Tree, Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas Darling, I’ll Be Home For Christmas, Linus & Lucy” and more. We can warm up the coldest winter nights with this enchanting holiday musical evening.

Rat Pack Tribute Show: Want an evening with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and maybe Sammy Davis too? We have that along with our full big band accompaniment for the swankiest of affairs anywhere. Hear the classics like “New York, New York, Mr. Bojangles and You’re Nobody Til Sombeody Loves You” and much more. After the one hour show the band plays variety dance music so everyone can join in the fun.

Blues Brothers Tribute Show: This can be a real gas. Our good friends the Blues Brothers from Universal Studios join the big band for a huge night of entertainment. After the Blues Brothers revue the big band continues with dance music while Elwood and Jake sign autographs and pose for pictures with your guests. Titles include: “Flip, Flop Fly, Rawhide, Sweet Home Chicago, Hey Bartender, Can’t Turn You Loose” and more.

(New) Extreme Disco & Motown: This show comes complete with 5 dancers. Let us take you down the road from Motown to Michael Jackson’s Thriller with sensational horns, great singers, flashy costumes and action packed dancing too. Audience members are invited to join in on many numbers.

And we have many more themed events we can do like “An Olde South Ball” or “Professional Idol” with eight professional singers belting out the hits of every decade of music.  Contact Us about your big event now!

Andrew Thielen Big Band

Last Saturday, I had the great pleasure of playing with the always fantastic Andrew Thielen Big Band at the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery, Alabama. We played for four hours with no break. Great and responsive audience and great tunes. ... See MoreSee Less

Today, our family enjoyed listening to The Andrew Thielen Big Band Christmas Concert that I recorded live (from your board feed) at the UNCW Kenan Auditorium on December 14, 1996. Jackie Beaumont was the vocalist. Hard to believe I've now played the CD for 22 Christmases since then! Love to you all. ... See MoreSee Less

wow David....that's so nice of you to post this message. You made my day and it's Christmas! Wow...that's about when my band was just starting. I'd love to hear that sometime and if you ever get a chance to send it to me at atbigband@aol.com that would be sensational. I needed some fun news like this today. God bless you David, thanks again and Merry Christmas. 😁
