Ponca City Arts and Humanities Council is proud to play host to the Great Big Band, on Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at the historic Poncan Theatre.  Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the concert is free to the public.  No tickets are required to attend.


The Great Big Band was organized in August 2004, and is comprised of 22 musicians from Perry, OK and surrounding communities.  Four members of the band are Po-Hi alumni.  The Band is beginning its eighth season and continues to provide the big band sound fans crave.   Most of the music they perform is from the 30's, 40's, and early 50's, the band era, although more contemporary arrangements are also included.  Relax and re-live those wonderful memories you made while listening to these songs for the very first time, a few of which are:  Route 66, Memories of You, The Nearness of You,  Sentimental journey, and In the Mood.  A few Christmas melodies will be included in the performance.


This concert is made possible with the assistance of  the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.  Ponca City Arts and Humanities Council also receives financial assistance from its members and local businesses such as ConocoPhillips, Martin, Jean and Jackson Attorneys at Law, RCB Bank, and the Osage Casino.
