Since 1999, the Lakes Area Swing Band has been dedicated to the preservation of Big Band music, and providing scholarships to music students.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, this all-volunteer group raises money through their performances and donations to provide scholarships for music students in grades 7–12 seeking financial assistance for attending band camp, private lessons, other music schools or college music program.

Thanks for visiting, and please feel free to contact us for any additional information, including booking the band, making donations, our scholarships; or even playing with the band. Keep on swingin'!

This is the annual Memorial Day Service recognizing all those are service persons who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.  LASB is honored to provide some accompanying music plus military fight songs before and after the very moving ceremony. 


The ceremony is open to the public and typically runs from 10am to noon.  This is a great event to attend if you want to find the true meaning of Memorial Day.
