Big Band Music Magazine

Pete's Website

Welcome to Big Band Buddies, the website for all Big Band fans. Originally started in 1999, my aim to bring news to fans of Big Band Swing music and Jazz performances active today, and those of yesteryear with some nostalgic reflections of the great bands from the 20's 30’s 40’s to the present day. Over the past fourteen years we have encountered many enthusiasts who have contributed to these pages with their stories and photos from concerts to individual musicians and singers they have met.
I am privileged to have had many hundred of letters of support for not only this Internet website but also for the magazine we now distribute to many hundreds of fans around the world. I have made contact with many musicians, famous celebrity musicians and singers who have entertained us over the years, many of those people now members of Big Band Buddies who have them selves contributed to our magazine and this web site.
I have tried to established many links to current bands operating today as well as other Internet sites relevant to our interest, which I’m sure you will find interesting.
I endeavour to keep this site growing as more and more sites become available as well as interesting articles we receive.
