    About The Birdland Big Band The Birdland Big Band was created by Tommy Igoe in 2006 and has become the most popular weekly musical residency in New York City. The BBB is a world-class music event and its personnel features the countrys finest top-shelf talent, including musicians from every jazz/pop tour and Broadway show imaginable. The bands newest recording, Eleven, has been glowingly received with numerous five-star reviews and is currently in the Grammy conversation for three separate awards. The band is dedicated to performing unique music from all over the world with jaw-dropping musicianship. As Igoe boldly states, The world doesnt need another good big band, it needs something unforgettable, spectacular something to bring a brand-new audience to this incredible art form. In 2013 the BBB is touring the U.S., taking the Birdland experience to performing arts centers across the country.
