Jim Markum

this is a rescheduled concert from Thursday, June 29, which was cancelled due to the weather forecast calling for light rain throughout the day and into the evening. 

The Jim Markum Swing Band is a 11-piece group that features very talented musicians on every part. Though small by "big band" standards, this band packs a HUGE punch!  From screamin' brass to wailin' saxes, jammin' rhythms to drippin' ballads, this band has it all.  Featuring Jim Markum on lead trumpet, their signature sound includes screamin' high notes and technical prowess other bands can only dream about.  That's right, this band has it all!

From golden oldies of the Big Band Era to the modern sounds of pop, jump swing, and blues, the Jim Markum Swing Band will get you  "IN THE MOOD".  Our growing library contains a wide variety of music suitable for any occasion and audiences of all ages.
