Oh, that jazz big band sound! The Reno Jazz Orchestra is motivated to create good music in the grand tradition of jazz big band stage performance. It's based on the love of that grand sound and the rush and wonder of playing 17 pieces to a packed house. Now, that's heaven! Reno has made a name for itself with jazz, and some would argue, the strongest tradition is the big band sound. The intense love of music has made Reno a magnet for world class performers. Whatever venue, historic or modern, the demand for big band jazz continues, and RJO loves playing for audiences and loves its fans.
