Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra was founded in 1976 by the late Bruce Early and has since reigned supreme as west Michigan’s premier big band sound.

Last night West Michigan Jazz Society honored bandleader Bob Nixon as their Musician of the Year with a banquet and Grand Rapids Jazz Orchestra performance at Noto’s Italian Old World Dining.

GRJO can be found performing in Founders Taproom the first Sunday of every month. They’ll also keep to tradition by kicking off the upcoming GRandJazzFest, Saturday August 18th and 19th on Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids!
