ConneXion Big Band is one of Canberra's oldest and most established big bands, known for getting audiences on their feet dancing the night away.

Directed by Sally Greenaway and featuring several of Canberra's top jazz vocalists, ConneXion Big Band recreates the powerful and famous 18-piece big horn sound, playing a diverse range of repertoire from a library of more than 500 charts.

Our repertoire spans vintage swing from the early 1940s (think Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Ella Fitzgerald), hits of the 1960s-1980s (think James Bond, Frank Sinatra, the Beatles and the Blues Brothers) through to contemporary jazz works (like Bob Mintzer and Stan Kenton) and even works by Australian jazz composers and arrangers.

We specialise in tailoring our music selections to suit the occasion, whether it be weddings, vintage dance events, conferences, corporate functions, or festivals with music-loving audiences. We even offer a small jazz ensemble for those more intimate occasions to set the atmosphere before bringing out the big horn sound of the full big band.

Regularly teaming up with Canberra-based swing dancers, ConneXion Big Band is guaranteed to entertain audiences and get their feet tapping all night long. If you're organising a wedding, party, conference dinner, ball or any other celebration, we are the band for you.


"Wonderful! Connexion Big Band was definitely the highlight of the night. We really amazed our guests when a full big band kicked off the dance floor! A great selection of music and an extremely tight, well-rehearsed performance. We couldn't be happier, and thank you for making our night one we'll never forget! "
- Greg O'Rourke (Groom, Wedding)

"Everyone was thrilled with ConneXion Big Band and their singers. I would like to thank everyone for their professionalism and enthusiasm. If I get to organise anything else you will be the first to be invited."
- Kath Nichols (MEIS Management Committee)
