The Kansas Smitty's Big Band was created to perform the music of Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington. This special festive programme will feature the Ellington and Billy Strayhorn arrangements of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite rounding out the performances with classics from the Ellington catalogue.

It was "The Duke's" music, along with his great rival and contemporary Count Basie, that inspired band leader Giacomo Smith to form Kansas Smitty's way back in 2012.  Never-the-less this big band represents a new sound for Smitty's incorporating new collaborators who inspire him today to celebrate this music.

The fifteen-piece big band was born in the winter of 2020 at the KSTV studio. Both KSTV and this band are emblematic of Smitty's desire to push things forward no matter what.This digital music production studio breathed much needed energy into the music and the fans and the artistic community they have steadfastly nurtured over the last decade. Now we can all be together, it's time to do some real celebrating.
