Welcome to the
Ron Marenger Big Band

The Ron Marenger Band performs an exciting mix of traditional big band jazz as well as repertoire from more recent years. You will love the swing music from the 1930's, 40's and 50's in the style of Glen Miller, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.
The instrumentation for this 17 piece big band includes 5 saxophones, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, piano, bass, drums and guitar, delivering great sound while accompanying our engaging lead vocalist. As a local ensemble of talented musicians living in the Peterborough and Kawarthas region, we play for fun and enjoyment. Coming from diverse professions and backgrounds, we are serious about playing music well, we like nothing more than having our audiences respond to our big band jazz with enthusiasm as they dance their night away.

Next Show

We are please to be the first of three wonderful bands taking part in the Cobourg Big Band Festival Concert Series. Please join us on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 8pm. Caberet style seating and lots of room for dancing. Please download the poster for full details.


Although much of the music we play comes from the Big Band Era of the '30s and 40s, we also play a range of music from every decade right through to current charts from Nora Jones and Michael Buble.
