We regret to inform you that our Thanksgiving concert and dance at Milton Brounshilde Post on November 18, 2022 has been postponed. After much discussion with the Post we made this difficult decision to postpone because of the amount of snow forcast for the Buffalo area.

We understand that this change may cause great inconvenience for you and are sincerely sorry.

The new date will be March 31st, 2023, same location and time. Tickets purchased will be honored at that time. If you cannot attend this date please contact us.

We are pleased to announce the return of the Alex Rene’ Big Band

The Alex Rene’ Big Band is an 18 (or so) piece Big Band that has been a fixture in the Buffalo/ Niagara Falls area since the early 1970s.

Our founder (and namesake) Alex Rene passed away suddenly in early 2021 and the decision was made to continue his musical legacy.

The band prides itself on being an authentic big band with instrumentation of five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums and male and female vocalists.

Well known tunes in our large library include: Glen Millers “Moonlight Serenade”, Benny Goodman’s “Let’s Dance”, Les Brown’s “Sentimental Journey” and Harry James “You Made Me Love You”. We also perform more current big band music from Brian Seltzer Orchestra, Patsy Cline, & Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Dancing is encouraged!
