About Us

Unforgettable at the Yorktowne Hotel

Celebrating more than 15 years of delighting audiences throughout the Susquehanna Valley region of the United States, Unforgettable Big Band pays tribute to great artists such as Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw who represent the glory days of swing. We also perform new big band literature and arrangements from Gordon Goodwin, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, and even Carlos Santana, Queen, and Bruno Mars. Our vocalists honor the great singers of the big band era, from Peggy Lee to Doris Day, and from Cab Calloway to Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and more.

Unforgettable Big Band is a community big band based in York, Pennsylvania that draws some of the most talented musicians from all across the region who are interested in maintaining the vitality of music from the Big Band era. The band has performed throughout the region, and  become one of the area's best known and most liked bands. As a community band, service is a part of our mission.  It is our desire to give back to the generations that have paved the way before us.

The band is available for parties, receptions, special events and corporate functions, in addition to traditional dance and concert engagements. We endeavor to accommodate worthy fund raising efforts, as well. Currently organized as a non-profit corporation, Unforgettable Big Band is dedicated to continuing the American big band tradition.

Les Brown and Doris Day

Four years ago, Unforgettable Big Band was honored to perform as the feature band at the Centennial Les Brown Festival in Tower City/Reinerton, Pennsylvania, celebrating the 100th birthday of Reinerton's favorite son, Les Brown. In attendance at the festival were many members of the Brown family, and former members of Les Brown's Band of Renown, including Les Brown Jr., Dave Pell, and more.

Unforgettable Big Band will make their 5th visit to Messiah College on March 18, to perform for the annual Spring dance sponsored by the Messiah College Swing Dance Club. Along with 3 previous dance performances for the club, the band appeared at the Susquehanna Conference United Methodist Church gathering in 2014. The Messiah Swing Dance Club is one of the most active college dance clubs in the area, and a great turnout always fills the Hitchcock Arena for their dances.

Spring Swings at Lake Meade

Unforgettable Big Band performs at the Lake Meade Community Center.

With winter taking a firm grip on the Susquehanna Valley region, a reminder that Spring is just around the corner, and with it will come Unforgettable's 13th annual appearance at the Lake Meade Homemakers Dance. This fundraiser is our longest standing performance, one that we began when the band was just two years old. The dance has become an annual tradition at Lake Meade, and has raised more than $25,000 for local charities.

Swing at the Market Street Canteen

Unforgettable Big Band will be providing the music as downtown York swings during the York County Heritage Trust midwinter extravaganza on January 21. The Trust is bringing the atmosphere of the World War II years to life at the "Market Street Canteen," and inviting any and all history buffs, swing dancers, and friends to step out and swing at the Trust headquarters and museum at 250 E. Market Street in York.

Happy New Year - Happy New Look

Unforgettable Big Band would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our friends and fans a very happy and prosperous 2016. As we enter the new year, we've freshened up our website with a new design and a new back end to help to keep you more informed about where we will be, and what we will be doing as we enter our 16th season.
