The Tim Gill All-Stars Big Band:

Their irresistable cocktail of swinging, vintage groove mixed with hip, youthful energy puts a 21st century spin on the iconic crooner image.

TG All-Stars LogoDownbeat award-winning Singer, Trumpeter, and arranger Tim Gill plunges into the fray with his high-octane enxemble of world-class entertainers. He crafts a new take on American Songbook classics and serves up unique, ear-catching original tunes; whether they are packing a dance floor or heating up a happening night spot, Tim Gill and his All-Stars always deliver a one-of-a-kind show you'll never forget.

Convinced that a male vocalist fronting a big band didn't have to resort to hackneyed Sinatra covers, arranger/vocalist/trumpeter Tim Gill sought to give new life to the genre using spanking-new, creative arrangements and a unique blend of musicians who possessed extraordinary onstage charisma. As Tim puts it: “I didn't want to do the same old thing. I wanted to take the classic American Paradigm of the nightclub 'crooner' and big band, and look at it from a modern-day perspective; both in the energy of the show and the material we cover.”

The result is a slam-bang mashup of old-school groove & grit with new-school flair, a band that covers everything from Cole Porter, to Ray Charles, to The Beatles. But it ain't just about the man behind the mic- they're called the “All-Stars” for a reason. “My goal with the All-Stars was to assemble a group of friends whose personality and rapport would make the music something special,” says Tim. Given their long history together, each of the 10 All-Stars brings not only their unique musicality to the project, but a healthy dose of slapstick hi-jinks as well.

The All-Stars regularly perform at such prominent venues as the Disneyland Resort and the Honda Center, and their corporate client list includes NBC's "The Office", Kia Motors USA, and the Ellen Degeneres Show. The Tim Gill All-Stars debut album, “Bon Appetit,” was released in December 2010, and showcases the band's signature hard-swinging style. It's currently enjoying widespread airplay on such prominent radio stations as KJAZZ 88.1 FM.
