The 94th Aero Squadron has hosted an unusual progression of music from one band consisting of 18-plus, musicians for the past thirty years. The Rick Brunetto Big Band starting in the late 1980s with classic Big Band and Sinatra charts, evolved to Chicago, Manilow, and Motown over the decades, then sailing into Bruno Mars and Queen in 2018. How did they achieve this moment in time? Brunetto’s love of Doc Severinsen, started in his early teens when Rick promised himself he would one day have his own big band. The former percussionist with The Bob Allen Trio, after 15 years of playing six nights a week at Columbus’s Christopher Inn departed, bassist Cornell Wiley and pianist Bob Allen in 1984, to start his local homage to Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show Band.

June 1989 The Rick Brunetto Big Band started their notoriety at The 94th Aero Squadron, with Sunday afternoon tea dances. Brunetto’s vocalist at that time, Brian Michael Smith secured the weekly gig with Brunetto moving it a year later to the Thursday night dances. Thursday's became the signature night presenting, four trombones, four trumpets, five saxes and a rhythm section with Rick Brunetto on drums.
