Depot Town Big Band

Based in Ypsilanti Mi and formed in 2011, as a community band, members have come from diverse locations around southeast Michigan. During the day, the musicians have other occupations such as educators, engineers, doctors, information technology, and medical research, but their hearts lie with jazz and the big band era. They can be heard sharing their love of music with the community with charities, senior living centers and other civic events. Until the untimely closure, the band enjoyed a 7-year residency as the monthly house band of the history Haab's Restaurant.

DTBB is a traditional 19-piece Big Band featuring hits from the Great American Songbook and charts from the 1930s through current day. They take their influence from such greats as Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Maynard Ferguson, Harry Connick, Jr. and Gordon Goodwin.
