Nightingale Big Band

The Nightingale Big Band led by band leader and bassist, Gabe Lamog, is a group of musicians consisting primarily of college graduates representing MTSU and Cumberland University. Many members of the band are professionally involved with music education, either teaching at the elementary, secondary or college/university level, while others are actively playing live at local venues, private parties, studio recording, adjudicating at various band contests and festivals, songwriting, and continuing their college education.

The band not only has experience performing music of such greats from Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, Gordon Goodwin, Count Basie, to name a few, but have also played professional in various broadway style shows for MTSU, Cumberland University, The Starbright Players, and in local high school productions in and around the Middle Tennessee area.

While the band plays in such styles as Swing, Bossa Nova, Samba, and Jazz Fusion, they are also experienced in performing music in various forms of Classical, Rock & Roll, Country , Dance/R&B, Salsa, and Polkas.

We are honored to play at the Watertown Jazz Festival in 2021.
