JEKYLL ISLAND BIG BAND
The Jekyll Island Big Band holds a place in the history of Georgia’s favorite get away spot. Formed in 1979, this classic ballroom band has entertained not only on Jekyll Island, but throughout the southeast. It has been featured on Georgia Public Radio, in Georgia Music Magazine and numerous newspaper features. Under the direction of Dr. Hal Crowe, the 15 piece Jekyll Island Big Band performs Swing and Dance Standards that are timeless and exhilarating to ballroom dancers. Whether desiring to Foxtrot, Samba, Waltz or Tango, this is the orchestra that delivers.
E-Z CREDIT COMBO
Inspired by the similarities of the dance quartets and quintets of the 1940’s and 50’s and pop bands of more recent years, E-Z Credit formed in 1996 and has enjoyed a remarkable run as both a concert and dance band. Crossover styles in music featuring a horn trio and smooth vocals scan eclectic, keeping the dance floor alive with satisfying rhythms and harmonies.
