It has been an incredible opportunity the last almost 20 years to sing with The Big Swing Band.  When I started in 2002 we were pretty much just a rehearsal band. We played a Sunday show at Duncan Hall every once in a while to keep the rehearsal space.  Getting 20 bucks for a show was a big deal back then.  I've never been in it for the money.  Not many people can say they get to sing or play in a full big band.  -Dustin
