Our entire library – although since we add new charts frequently, this list isn’t exhaustive.  Note our geo-location for gigs have included as far away as Grand Rapids, so please contact us:

 

Our calling card, click it to contact the OJE!  This list of Big band charts played by the OJE around greater Kalamazoo is pretty impressive, but just in case you don’t see what you’re looking for but are interested in the OJE in general, please contact our Creative Director – we might actually have a chart not listed.
