Benjamin's Big Band is the flagship group within the Garigal Community Performing Arts Society. Audiences are always treated to a highly musical and entertaining performance by this versatile and often humorous group. A slightly larger than usual big band, it consists of flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, rhythm section (guitar, piano, bass, drums), and a number of vocalists.
There is also a range of excellent soloists and improvisers within each section ensuring variety throughout their shows. Age varies from 13 to adult and the repertoire requires strong, experienced players who have a good understanding of their instrument and who are proficient at reading difficult level charts. This band guarantees that your feet won't stop, even if you're sitting down.
