About the Band

The Savoy Big Band is a 13 piece band, reminiscent of the smaller big bands of the 1920s and 1930s. The Band was formed by Bob Feldbush and the late Jack Halkides in 2011 to recreate and preserve the sounds of the Chick Webb Band that played at the Savoy Night Cub in New York City from 1931 to 1939.

The Savoy Big Band uses the same instrumentation used by Chick Webb: 4 saxophones, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones , 3 rhythm and a vocalist.
