Big Band Jazz Society


From office parties to festivals, night-clubs to gospel shows.

Big Band Jazz Society, or JASO for short, has travelled since 1978 around Finland, Europe and the USA spreading good will and good feeling to thousands of occasions. The best Finnish jazz artists and visiting soloists, have not only shared the stage with JASO at some point in time but have also shaped our musical direction.

Basie, Ellington, Goodman, Miller.

JASO is most at home with 1940-50's swing dance music. Names such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller tells the rest of the story.

Our orchestra's music and performance can be arranged according to the nature of the occasion. This could be, for example, a celebration of a company's new product launch, a full-blown jazz concert or even a company/organisation's Big Band dance party. JASO has experience in performing at conferences, summits and cocktail parties where the orchestra can perform prearranged music, relaxing music for an intermission, as well as its own type of jazz influenced dance music. Whatever the nature of the party or occasion, a big live jazz orchestra will bring a real atmosphere to the proceedings!

Please contact us preferably at the planning stage of your party or occasion, although our very mobile orchestra is available at the very last minute, as required. JASO is professional, reliable and very co-operative to work with.
