JAY PAULUS' SOCIETY BAND (JPSB) is a 7 piece band with a Big Band sound, playing " The Great American Songbook", a little Traditional Jazz, a bit of Rock and Broadway Show Tunes.
JPSB was formed in Chicago and when we joined forces it was a marriage of musical talent. We collectively come from backgrounds of 17 piece Big Band, ensemble work, theater, commercial voice-overs and video performances.
In CA, we have gathered wonderfully talented local musicians we met through various musical oganizations and perform as a 7 piece band yet able to get a good sound with as few as a 4 piece combo.
JPSB has performed for the Association of Community bands - "The International Voice of Community bands", at their Convention; Saramento Music Festival; The Flying Doctors; the Northern California Widow & Widowers Club, the Shrine, VA Hospital @ Mather Field, Folsom Railroad Days, area Jazz Clubs and numorous theme parties such as Great Gatsby & Mardi Gras. We played regularly at Awful Annie's Restaurant in Lincoln and Ginger's Restaurant in Roseville for the dinner crowd. We are equally comfortable at large venues, performing for hundreds as we did at fair Oaks Park Summer Concert Series, or smaller more intimate groups as we have done for a loved one's Celebration of Life or other momentous occasions.
Jay Paulus' Society Band musical selections can be purchased at www.cdbaby.com which features 22 tunes from our very first album, "Dance and Sway" which has been awarded wonderful reviews from young and old alike. We look forward to entertaining you at your special occasion. Samples can be heard on this website.
