About the Bands
Kream of the Krop is a 17-piece Big Band that plays various music, including nostalgic music of the Big Band Era and many more current popular tunes. “We play for all types of audiences and events at multiple venues throughout Northern Colorado. You can hear us play many Big Band jazz tunes, from artists like Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, and more, to Harry Connick, Jr., Quincy Jones, and other modern composers and arrangers,” said a Kream of the Krop band member.
The New Horizons Band of Northern Colorado (NHB) began in 1997 with 30 people. “We have grown to over 60 members who are baby boomers, retirees, grandparents, veterans, novice and skilled musicians alike who enjoy making music to the best of our abilities! Our goal reflects Roy’s vision by “…creating an entry point to group music-making for adult beginners and a comfortable re-entry point for adults who played music at school and would like to resume after long years of building careers…” and we stand by that view today,” shared a member of the NCNHB. The NHB draws its members from Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont, Wellington, Windsor, Greeley, Berthoud, Mead, and other Northern Colorado locations.
The WiseAcres is a mid-size combo featuring jazz standards, Latin music, Dixieland, jazz-rock, etc. “Our music library is ever-expanding, so we have many choices for your event. We are located in the Greeley area and perform primarily in the Greeley-Fort Collins-Windsor-Loveland area,” said a band member from the WiseAcres.
The concerts will start at 7 p.m. and go to 8 p.m. Join us for timeless fun!
