Night Session is a full instrumentation big band including vocalist. The skilled, professional musicians are from the greater Toledo and Northwest Ohio area.

"Night Session's upbeat repertoire cuts across generations..."
The band's varied repertoire includes pop and jazz standards from the 1920s to the present. From the "hey day" of the big band era, the music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Les Brown, Stan Kenton and others are interspersed with more modern jazz band music, latin, pop, and rock standards. All age groups and many musical tastes are satisfied. The band is obviously well-rehearsed and it shows in the way the music drives ahead with confidence.
