Our mission is to create vibrant, engaging and meaningful performances that bring to life the incredible legacy of big band & jazz music. Through a variety of public & private partnerships, we aim to support the artistry of our musicians and bring joy to our communities through great music.

Originally formed in January of 2013 under the name "Frankie & Friends", drummer & producer Frank Basile had created a post on Craigslist titled, "Want to play in a big band?" Over time as word got out and the group grew, we migrated away from rehearsing in his basement and eventually settled on the name "Crescendo Amelia," in 2014. Now a professional, multi-faceted organization, the band has performed over 300 shows all across the region & even gained some international fans.

We work with a diverse array of artists, vocalists & instrumentalists to bring a modern yet authentic twist on a classic sound. With influences spanning the last 120 years, there isn't anything we don't enjoy performing. The love of the music keeps together & we hope you'll continue to share it with us far and wide. Our fans are everything to us, thank you!

We only work with the best!

 

"We are more than musicians and entertainers;

We are creators, educators and community leaders.

We do not want to be, nor ever will be, just another gig band."
