By creating The Montreux Vintage Big Band’s, we aimed to reunite some of the members of the original Montreux Big Band, and to form a new band with jazz lovers and musicians who are either retired or close to retirement. This – part old / part new Big Band was launched in 2017, and an association was officially founded with its board and committee. Our band rehearses at the Ancienne Poste des Planches in the old part of Montreux. Our repertoire is quite diverse, and includes swing, latin-jazz and funk as well as ballads with our singer. Around twenty musicians from all musical backgrounds – mostly jazz – play in the Montreux Vintage Big Band.
