JEKYLL ISLAND BIG BAND

The Jekyll Island Big Band truly 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. A 50 year Time Capsule buried at the Jekyll Island Club on December 31, 1999 includes items from the Jekyll Island Big Band and we’re featured in the history book;  Images Of America – Jekyll Island A State Park by Tyler Bagwell (Arcadia Press). 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.
