The Presque Isle Little Big Band

Allen Zurcher created the Presque Isle Little Big Band as part of developing the annual JazzErie Singers Night. He wrote arrangements for the entire evening, both to back up all four performers and groups, and to perform when the singers were not on stage.

You can see two of their performances below.

An All-Star Lineup

The band consisted of:

  • Allen Zurcher – tenor saxophone
  • Jeff Gibbens – trumpet
  • Scott Meier – alto saxophone
  • Kent Tucker – trombone

  • Harry Jacobson – acoustic bass
  • Sonny Froman – drums
