Bureau of Standards @ Jimmy Mak’s

August 22, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm PDT


Catch our debut show at premiere jazz club, Jimmy Mak’s.

The Bureau of Standards Big Band is a 17-member ensemble that, true to its name, recalls the halcyon days of Ellington at The Cotton Club, Ella at The Savoy, and the Rat Pack at The Sands. Featuring the best of the big band hits from the 1930s through the 1960s, the band shifts easily between your favorites from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee and Benny Goodman and contemporary artists like Michael Buble, Natalie Cole and Harry Connick Jr.

With charismatic vocalists Kat Cogswell and Warren Black, energetic emcee, director and trumpeteer James M Gregg, and the sizzle and soul of 14 of the finest musicians in town, The Bureau of Standards seeks to entertain with swingin’ music, levity and laughs, stylish stage presence and audience participation. It’s a show you can’t see anywhere else in town!
