River Cities Jazz is an 18 piece big band formed in Central Wisconsin in 1999. Our primary intent is to perform music that is fun to play and enjoyable to hear. We play a variety of styles from a variety of composers and arrangers; Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Buddy Rich, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Maynard Ferguson, Don Sebesky, Earth Wind & Fire, and lots more. Sooooo... kick back, listen and enjoy when our group takes the stage.

RCJ plays regularly at the Sky Club in Plover and the Waupaca Ale House in Waupaca, Friday nights from 8:00-10:00, with no cover charge. The band is also available for private parties, wedding receptions, jazz festivals and concert series. See our performance schedule page for other appearances.

River Cities Jazz big band has gotten rave reviews by providing audiences with sounds and entertainment that can easily be proclaimed "exciting." Playing the extremes from luscious ballads to FULL SOUNDING shout choruses to delicate shuffle music, RCJ captures its audience and takes it on an unforgettable ride.
