The Minidoka Swing Band consists of 18 musicians and 3 vocalists who play and sing such big band tunes as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Sentimental Journey,” “Moonlight Serenade,” “American Patrol,” “Tuxedo Junction,” “All of Me,” and many more. The Band has been recognized by TV, magazine and newspaper organizations and articles, including the Wall Street Journal (New York), an Emmy-nominated story by KING TV5 Evening Program (Seattle, Washington), the Pacific Citizen Magazine (San Francisco, California), and many more local newspapers around the Portland-Metro area. Two of the Minidoka Swing Band’s musical recordings were used in the nationally-broadcasted documentary, “Searchlight Serenade,” produced by KEET TV Public Broadcasting (Eureka, California).
We would love to perform our historical concert at your local event or venue. The not-for- profit Minidoka Swing Band operates solely on grants and donations and performs frequently at major cultural events, conferences, parks and schools throughout America’s Pacific Northwest.
