Looking for a place to have a office holiday gathering? Or just get together with friends?
How about planning to meet at Central Park Place (in the Grand Haven Community Center) in Grand Haven on Tuesday, December 20? You can have a drink or two, all while hearing some of the best jazz musicians in West Michigan - Muskegon's own Truth In Jazz Orchestra! This will be our holiday special, where we mix in a few holiday favorites in a way only a 16-piece big band can do! These, along with many other big band jazz numbers will brighten up the gathering.

421 Columbus Ave Grand Haven, MI 49417
7:30 - 9:30 PM

Hope to see you there


Fronted by West Michigan's legendary drummer, Tim Froncek, this group of 16 of the area's top musicians plays charts from the classic era of the big bands, up to today's best charts from the hottest writers. The band was organized by Dave Collee, Ed Spier, and Matt Lintula, who wanted a group able to play pro-level big band literature, and have fun doing it! We have assembled a great bunch of area musicians who enjoy the challenge of playing great charts in a large ensemble.

Playing a mixture of classic jazz big band pieces from the Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, and other big band libraries, plus some VERY recent charts from Gordon Goodwin and others.

We had a great time playing for the West Michigan Jazz Society's Summer Concert Series on Monday, July 26, 2022. They shared some photos of the event on facebook!
