The Clay County Community Band Swing Ensemble specializes in music from the "Big Band Era" of the 30's through the 50's as well as some more contemporary arrangements. The ensemble performs as a service to the community, supported by the dues paid by the members themselves and gracious donations from people and organizations outside of the Band for whom they perform and who appreciate their efforts.
The Swing Ensemble was formed by its current director, Burk Shields, at the request of some of the band members who wanted to play a different style of music, and be able to add a new dimension to our concerts. All of the members are required to also be members of the Community Band.
The ensemble has performed their version of Big Band Swing music at: The Clay County Fair, Christmas On Walnut Street celebration in Green Cove Springs, Retired Officers Club dinners at NAS Jacksonville, San Jose Yacht Club Officer Inauguration dinner, Fall and Spring concerts of the Community Band at Orange Park United Methodist Church, and fund raising activities for Argyle Elementary School, Lakeside Junior High School, Ridgeview High School, Fleming Island High School, and Women For Education in Orange Park.
This performance is made possible through the generous support of VyStar Credit Union and the Clay County Swing Band.
