Big Band Athens

Classic City SwingBig Band Athens is an 18-member band formed in the summer of 2006, and is under the direction of Ben Robinson. It schedules independently of the Classic City Band. Our original mission was to make the music of the ’40s Big Band Era available for local retirement homes, senior citizen groups, and select non-profit fundraising benefits.

FullSizeRenderBig Band Athens is also available for weddings, dance clubs, banquets, and other private events. The donation required is set depending on the length of the program and the location of the venue. Please contact Herb Meyer at 706-380-3878 for scheduling and more details.
