Big Band Atlanta

Led by Alto Sax player and Musical Director Dave Rickard, Big Band Atlanta is an 18 piece Big Band featuring a powerful horn section.  


We are known for live music in Atlanta GA, playing interesting and original music in addition to the standards from The Great American Songbook that everyone loves so well. If your celebration is in Atlanta, GA, TN, AL, FL, NC or SC we'd love to play your event.


Whether you are looking forward to an evening of classic Big Band music, Swing Dance Music, The Standards or a sound you've never heard before, Big Band Atlanta has you covered.


This band features original Big Band musical compositions by Dave Rickard as well as other unique composers and players you may not have heard of.  We are always happy to play the oldies and learn new music for your special event.


We are a Wedding Band, a Corporate and Charity Event Band, a Swing Dance Band and Your Event Band!​​
