The Rod Pierson Big Band featuring Craig Boche offers you the sound of today's big bands, the biggest entertainers from the popular "Rat Pack" period, and classic instrumental big band hits. This extensive library gives the band the depth and versatility to create the right mood for any event, and to please any audience.

The Rod Pierson Big Band and its diminutive sidekick, the Not So Big Band, are two of the Midwest's premiere entertainment choices. The flexible size of the ensemble (from 7 to 13) can accommodate practically any venue, event or budget. The natural mixture of class and cool guarantees a memorable performance without a lot of show biz pretense. The approach is fun, honest, and most importantly, accessible.

Get on your dancing shoes and join us at the outdoor stage at Newbo City Market for a night full of music and fun! This event is a Freedom Festival produced event.
