With a vision to recreate the sound, the look, and the mood of the Big Bands of the 30's and 40's, Steve Lallier's Tuxedo Junction offers a refreshing and authentic musical recreation of the swing era. This 20 piece band will put you, "In the Mood" to "Jump, Jive, and Wail"!

The band's musical library includes all familiar big band favorites, played in the same rich, full ensemble arrangements that make listening and dancing to this music so exciting. With the current popularity of swing dancing, the band's program will be enjoyed by all ages.

Mary Ellen Spann, Kim Dugger, and Grant Dawson are the band's vocalists. A typical program includes approximately 70% vocal numbers.

Tuxedo Junction is certainly a 'dance band'. Every tune is arranged for dancing. From swing to latin rhythms, including all ballroom styles, Steve can put together a program designed specifically for your event.

Carl "The Chiken" Murr is the band's arranger and lead trombone player. For special requirements, arranging is available. If your event or program demands a specific song with a certain feel and sound, Tuxedo Junction can deliver it! You can have exactly what you want!

Their stage presentation, including 'tuxedo-clad' musicians, serve up an image that will confirm the romantic, sentimental, and memorable mood associated with the days of the big bands. Zoot suits come out on occasion, too!

For the last thirteen years, a period much longer than the big band era itself, Tuxedo Junction has continued to provide the best in music for numerous weddings, corporate events, and special occasions.

The band has released two CDs. "Up in Harlem on a Saturday Night" is a recreation of the musical magic that was once 'Uptown' during the fabulous Swing Era. And, "Tuxedo Junction - A Music Sampler" was recorded 'live' at the Isle of Capri Casino!

Let Tuxedo Junction put you...
"In the Mood" to "Jump, Jive, and Wail"!

"WOW...Y'all are good! My compliments to the Tuxedo Junction Band. What a great sound! Your vocalists are clearly 'outstanding'.
- Dallas booking agent -

"I haven't heard a band in the Dallas area which has a better play list of primarily Big Band and Swing music. They play the music most of us like dance to. And for those who would prefer to listen, the arrangements are excellent and the vocals of Craig and Mary Ellen are very smooth. So this Friday night, bring your favorite dance partner, bring your friends who don't dance, heck, bring your mom and dad out to hear the best sounds of the big band era.
Remember "If you ain't sweatin', you ain't swingin'!"
- Jerry Warwick, swing dancer -

May your complement be added to the list after your big event!

Da Boys in da Band! Tuxedo Junction serves up a show
that delivers fun and excitement,
yet creates a romantic and
sentimental mood once associated
with the days of the big bands.
