Flat River Big Band
Join us for a night of big band music and dance! Great for dancers and listeners, the Holiday Inn Ballroom will be filled with swing-era tunes performed by the Flat River Big Band of Greenville, MI. Come and join in the fun as this popular group returns once again to the Festival of the Arts. The eighteen member Flat River Big Band is made up of musicians from all walks of life — band directors, business professionals, factory workers, engineers, medical professionals — including several Big Rapids musicians. The group’s repertoire includes well known selections from the famous jazz orchestras of Glen Miller, Benny Goodman and the Dorsey Brothers, while also serving up contemporary selections.
