Band Regrouping

The Hog Heaven Big Band is regrouping, and invites musicians to come give Big Band Swing music a try. We play music from the Big Band Era of Count Basie and Glenn Miller, up to the modern swing revival, featuring the music of groups like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Cherry Poppin Daddies. 

To check us out, just come to one of our upcoming rehearsals, April 11th, 7:30 - 9:30 pm and April 18th, 7:30 - 9:30 pm, at Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 1036 W. A Street, in Moscow. 

The emphasis is on having fun, enjoying the camaraderie of making music with friends. Soloing is optional. If you’re not sure, come and listen, and if you like it, bring your instrument next time.

Choo Choo Ch' Boogie at the 2009 Moscow Farmer's Market

Here's the band playing Choo Choo Ch' Boogie at the 2009 Moscow Farmer's Market. The band loves to perform at the market. Lots of people come out to listen and dance. Solveig and Anne enjoy singing for the crowd.

Tunes We Like To Play

Here's a set list from one of our gigs. The band likes to play old classics and new swing revival tunes. Bands like the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are helping to bring swing music to a new audience.

The Cherry Poppin' Daddies recently performed at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival and put on a terrific show. Zoot Suit Riot written by Steve Perry, frontman for the band, is one of our favorite swing revival tunes.
