Big Beat is a 19-piece big band that was formed in 2014 with one purpose - to make music that sounds good and feels good.  Founded by alumni of William Paterson University's vaunted jazz program, the band is steeped in the modern jazz tradition, but they refuse to limit themselves to any particular genre.  Big Beat combines influences from jazz, R&B, soul, and gospel music to create an original big band sound, with innovative arrangements of songs ranging from Mulgrew Miller to Maxwell. They make you feel the groove.
