Greeley Colorado Summer Series Band Highlights

Kream of the Krop is a 17-piece Big Band that plays nostalgic music of the Big Band Era. Enjoy their rendition of jazz tunes from artists like Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, Harry Connick, Jr., Quincy Jones, and more popular favorites.

The John Mills Orchestra (JMO) was started in 2000 by John Mills, a Greeley resident and graduate of the University of Nebraska. The band recorded and released its first jazz album in 2003 and has been performing at events ever since. Although the musicians have changed throughout the years, their arrangements give a fresh perspective to many recognizable jazz standards.

In 1997, the New Horizons Band of Northern Colorado (NHB) began with 30 people. It has grown to over 60 members, including novice and skilled musicians who enjoy making music. Touring throughout Northern Colorado, the band won’t disappoint when they take the stage.
