BT ALC Big Band

The BT ALC Big Band is a 17 Piece Original Funk/Soul/Hip Hop/Jazz Big Band. This is not your daddy's big band!! (unless your daddy is James Brown!)

Since 2011, the BT ALC Big Band has been developing the concept of infusing the tradition of big band instrumentation with modern funk, soul, hip hop and R&B to create a powerful force in the Boston music scene. The BT ALC Big Band includes a rotating cast of the funkiest and most incredible musicians in the Northeast. They released their debut album Superhero Dance Party (2014) to rave reviews and established themselves as a live act not to be missed.

The following two years allowed the time for the band to develop their sound and identity while holding down a bi-monthly residency at Cambridge's Beat Brasserie. New music and often new musicians on the bandstand were a norm as the BT ALC Big Band repertoire and musical family grew. Over the past few years, in addition to the regular band members listed below, they have had the pleasure of welcoming fabulous guest artists including Sean Jones, Alan Evans, Tia Fuller, The Nth Power, Charles Haynes, Jesse Dee, Ken Clark, Bijon Watson, Chris Loftlin and Eric Bloom.

The music harvested during those years yielded their second and third releases, The Herd Sessions, Vol. 1 (Dec 2016) and The Herd Sessions, Vol. 2 (Feb 2017). These albums were procured from the same studio session which was recorded and co-produced by Charles Haynes (Ed Sheeran, Marcus Strickland). These albums carry forward their consistent approach of producing music that includes soulful melodies, virtuosic soloists and most importantly, a hard grooving rhythm section to ensure that you will be bobbin your head!

The BT ALC Big Band continue to evolve, compose, improvise and bring their brand of Big Band Funk to audiences throughout New England. They hope YOU come out and experience it for yourself!!
