JazzMN Orchestra

World-Class Jazz Orchestra on the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres Main Stage!

CBS Minnesota (WCCO) said, “This is pure jazz in all its glory.” Jazz reviewer Pamela Espeland described a JazzMN performance as “…exciting. All those musicians, swinging hard. Horns blaring. Hot solos. And the sound, you feel it on your skin and in your bones.” The JazzMN Orchestra, led by artistic director Doug Snapp, features Twin Cities jazz heavyweights such as Dave Karr, Pete Whitman, Mary Louise Knutson and Joe Pulice. Every time JazzMN performs at CDT it sells out. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Minnesota’s premiere big band live on stage at Chanhassen Dinner Theatres.

JazzMN Orchestra Announces Their 2018-2019 Season!

JazzMN Orchestra

Sinatra & Basie - Live at the Sands

Monday, October 22, 2018
Dinner - 5:30pm
Show - 7:30pm

Curtis Stigers and the JazzMN Orchestra will take you back in time when Frank Sinatra and Count Basie rocked the house at the famous Sands Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip!  

Curtis Stigers is a multi-platinum success who has recorded with notable artists such as Elton John, Eric Clapton, Prince, and Rod Stewart.  In September 2017, Mr. Stigers hired the JazzMN Orchestra to back him up for a sold out performance at the Dakota Jazz Club.  They performed Sinatra/Basie works that Stigers had recently recorded with the Danish Radio Big Band on his CD “One More For The Road.”  This performance is what led to the concept for JazzMN recreate the famous Sinatra/Basie Live at the Sands Las Vegas performance!

“Rock ‘n’ roll and jazz share so many of the same artistic bloodlines that it’s remarkable the two don’t fuse more often into the kind of inspired marriage of visceral clout and intellectual savvy conjured by the singer, songwriter and saxophonist Curtis Stigers.” – The New York Times
