Omaha Big Band is here and hotter than ever. Drawing from the top professional musicians in the Omaha area, the OBB is a powerful, high energy, swingin' 17-piece ensemble. OBB continues to please and amaze audiences, performing a variety of big band styles, while focusing mainly on the classics. This highly requested ensemble, under the direction of trombonist Chris Acker, maintains a busy schedule performing in a variety of settings, including the Nebraska Touring Program, it's own concert series, Jazz Festival performances and a host of private occasions. The band also supports the Omaha Musicians Association (Local 70-558 of the American Federation of Musicians) by performing concerts as part of the Omaha Park Concert Series as well as clinics and master classes for students of all ages. Currently, OBB performs the first Monday of every month at the Ozone in Omaha (72nd and F streets).
