The Saadiyat Big Band is a 20 piece band comprising talented musicians from over 15 nationalities featuring both male and female singers.
Based in Abu Dhabi, the band consists of local players from various backgrounds, including members of the National Symphony Orchestra, music professionals from across the UAE and ex-military musicians from the UK, USA, and Canada.
We keep alive the style and sounds of the Big Bands of the era such as Glenn Miller, Count Basie and Duke Ellington, including arrangements made famous by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Bobby Darin. We also include modern standards from the likes of Michael Bublé, Robbie Williams and Harry Connick Jnr.
