Big Band Dances!!!


Open to the public, held at the Stout Memorial United Methodist Church

Originally called the "Big Band Brunch" the band performed for many years at the Holiday Inn in Parkersburg during Sunday Brunch starting in the early 1980's.  The popular format was moved to the old Dils Department Store building downtown in the 1990's but as fans of the Big Band era dwindled a new group of fans emerged who were interested more in ballroom dancing than just listening.  


   Eventually the band moved to the Lubeck Community Center where there is a large dance floor and the brunch part of the program was eliminated.  The band also adjusted their playlist to accomodate the dancers with waltzes, tangos, cha-chas, rhumbas and other music mixed in with the classic songs from the Big Band era.

    For the upcoming season the venue has changed once again to the Stout Memorial United Methodist Church in Parkersburg, WV.
