Wow! Our 14th consecutive summer on the Summer Sounds line-up at Naylor Wine Cellars. This beautiful vineyard in York County, PA offers everything for a great night of big band music and swing dancing. Enjoy dancing on the covered dance floor or just sit back and enjoy the entertainment by Blue Moon Big Band.

This is the venue where we recorded our live 2-CD set, "Caught in the Act" Live at Naylor Wine Cellars," to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2008. We'll have that recording plus other CDs available as well.

Get ready for an evening of music from the Great American Swing Era. All swing, all night long! Don't miss it.

We're back! And this time we're celebrating a Blue Moon. That's right, July 31 is a Blue Moon - the modern day definition of when there are 2 full moons in the same month. A full moon occurs roughly every 29.5 days, so it is a rare occasion when 2 full moons appear in the sky in one month.

So come out to Naylor Wine Cellars and join us as we enjoy a weekend of something very rare. Just like that old English ideomatic expression, "Once in a Blue Moon," this will be an event you won't want to miss!
       

We are constantly adding new dates to our calendar, so be sure to visit this page regularly for more "open to the public" engagements for Blue Moon Big Band, Li'l Bit of Blue, Big Band Caliente, Blue Caliente, and the Marty Knepp Trio. If you would like to contact us for your next engagement, visit the Hire Us page to send us a no-obligation inquiry.
