Harrisburg Jazz Collective Big Band – Central PA’s Premier Big Jazz Band!!

I'm very happy to be back playing with the band - hope to see you there!!!

All Standard Seats: $15 High Top (Seats 2): $35 Booth (Seats 4-6): $80 We highly recommend purchasing your seats in advance at https://www.westshoretheatre.org/tickets/ as these regularly sell out.

Founded in October of 2014, Steve Rudolph (pianist/composer and founder of the Central PA Friends of Jazz) & Bill Perbetsky (trumpeter and former band director at Susquehanna H.S.) co-lead the 16-piece ensemble. The players include the finest musicians from our area and beyond performing music from the historic big bands (Ellington/Basie/ Dorsey) to more modern bands (Buddy Rich, Thad Jones, Rob McConnell. Gordon Goodwin, Bob Mintzer) as well as original music and arrangements from members and friends. Originally named the River City Big Band, the HJC Big Band is happy to have the West Shore Theatre as our new venue for regular performances to go along with our new name. The Harrisburg Jazz Collective Big Band will be featuring guest artists with the band at our regular West Shore appearances and performing holiday concerts in December.
