The Serenaders band was originally formed in 1983 and has been active in various forms ever since. Although the band has always highlighted jazz standards from the proverbial Great American Songbook, it has evolved to include big band and swing versions of contemporary jazz and popular music.
Comprised of ten instrumentalists, the ensemble can best be described as a little big band, creating a big band sound for a variety of music. The music is perfect for dancers − as well as those who just like to sit back and enjoy the music. The Serenaders play for events indoors and out, including dinner-dances, picnics and all types of celebrations; they performed at CityDance San Jose in 2016.
