What People Are Saying

The George Lake Big Band is unique; a much 0ver-used word that means there is none other like it. Yet that happens to be the state of the art in this instance: this orchestra, under Steve’s expert and inspired direction, is a musical one-off–let us cherish its rare artistry and support its appearances.

Hi Steve, Still can’t wipe the smile off our faces after the wonderful concert last night. Loved your screamin, brass. Please put us on your mailing list.

The Bar was packed with people, all waiting expectantly for the George Lake Big Band to start. I felt like I was in the middle of an old black and white movie, especially when the suave leader of the 19-piece band, donned his cool black hat and smoothly wished us all a warm Chick’n’Deli welcome. We sat over beer and wings, and soaked up an amazing show of sheer musical brilliance. I had the time of my life.
