To quote the band's website, bigbandrockparty.com, "Lead by the high=and-hard blown' trumpet of Rex Merriweather, THIS AIN'T YOUR DADDY'S BIG BAND is Los Angeles' top musicians- a talented force drawn from the bands of Buddy Rich, Brian Setzer, Manhattan Transfer, Tower of Power, The Captain & Tennille, Rod Stewart and more.
"And the reason this ain't your daddy's big band is because beyond the spicy Latin, the Hellzapoppin' standards and the maxed-out contemporary favorites, this rocking' jazz band kicks out picked takes of TV and Film hits, sets on fire charts made famous by Maynard Ferguson, Chuck Mansion, and Tower of Power, and comes out swinging' hard behind the show and vocal chops of artists like Christine Chaulsett, Matt Phairas, Ned Rifkin, and Bill A. Jones (Rod Remington on TV's "Glee"!)
"If you're wondering where the party at?, look no further than THIS AIN'T YOUR DADDY'S BIG BAND- 'cause you just found the biggest band-tactic rockin-est party-villa in the hemisphere and you're invited!"
