Crosswinds Jazz Band started with a dream and a single donation. The band started rehearsing in the sanctuary of the First United Methodist Church of Carrollton, and from the first rehearsal, it was obvious that they were on to something. They quickly attracted some of the best local players. CrossWinds has grown into a very exciting band and has become well known for their high caliber of music, as well as an extremely high level of musicianship.

They have performed at venues from church gatherings to black tie parties and wedding receptions, in addition to being featured at the Dallas Arboretum during their Summer Music Series. They have played for the Dallas Mayor's Committee, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and numerous other corporate events and fund raisers. Their music includes dance and swing styles from the Big Band era of Glen Miller and The Count Basie Orchestra, to the modern Big Band Jazz sounds of Gordon Goodwin, Maynard Ferguson, Stan Kenton, and The Tonight Show Band, just to name a few. Let them make your next event a success.

Individually, Crosswinds musicians are by day a diverse lot of engineers, computer programmers, salesmen, financial advisors, and band directors. By night, they come together as a unified whole, sharing a passion for producing big band and jazz favorites that leave you wanting more.
