The Stardust Memories Big Band is the vision of founder and band leader Craig Christman, and was created to bring this great music back for the enjoyment of audiences in SW Florida.  And, to play it with the quality and energy with which it was originally performed.

 
     
 

A significant part of our Mission is to support the development of young, aspiring musicians from the local SW Florida area.

 
     
 

Our Mission

 
     
 
  • Assemble a premier musical ensemble to perform the highest quality big band shows         available to public and private audiences in SW Florida

  • Support young, aspiring musicians from local area schools
 
     
  Our Support of Youth in the Arts  
     
  The SMBB has chosen to support two non-profits that provide needed services to young aspiring musicians in our area.  These are:  
     
  Music for Minors Foundation - provides musical instruments to aspiring young musicians nominated by their schools.  Students must meet academic requirements and demonstrate financial need.  
     
  The Music Foundation of SW Florida - sponsors Summer Music & Arts Camps, a Fifth Grade Traveling Instrument Program, Music Festivals and various scholarships and grants to area music students.
