The Yachats Big Band is a non-profit group dedicated to preserving swing era music. A donation of $5.00 for adults is appreciated and FREE for children under 12.
The Yachats Big Band was formed by Bill Bryner in 1992 with the members coming from all walks of life, but all sharing a common interest in big band music. There’s a wealth of experience in this band as the membership includes band directors, music teachers, college professors, a marine biologist, local business people, and retired professional musicians. They all have one thing in common, they’ve all spent many years learning their craft and truly enjoy getting together to play with the band, whether its for a rehearsal or a performance.
