GRBB was organized by the Grand Rapids Symphonic Band in 1991 after purchasing the well known "Ray Gill Orchestra" Book. The GRBB has provided playing opportunities for many area musicians since it's inception.

The band features saxophones, trombones, trumpets, piano, guitar, bass, drums and vocalist. The band has a large repertoire of big band literature. GRBB is a favorite with dancers playing tunes ideally suited for foxtrot, rhumba, cha cha, swing, bolero, waltz, mambo and hustle. Read less
