TIJO is RETURNING this summer! We have an outdoor concert on July 14, 2021, in Lakeview, Michigan. See our calendar for details! We are working on getting a rehearsal space, and getting scheduled again at our local venue in Muskegon, the Watermark 920. More details as we know them!

Welcome

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.
