Welcome to the Paducah Jazz Ensemble!
The Paducah Jazz Ensemble is an all-volunteer organization affiliated with the Paducah Concert Band. We are a traditional 18 piece “big band”, consisting of saxophone, trombone, trumpet and rhythm sections. Our director is Mr. Doug Van Fleet, a gifted music educator with a long history of producing award winning ensembles and encouraging talented musicians. He is recently retired as the director of band and orchestra at Paducah’s St. Mary High School. His current projects include private lessons and The Paducah Chamber Music Society.

Band members represent a diverse group of people, ranging from gifted high school students, area band directors and other music professionals, part-time musicians working full-time in other fields and retirees. Members come from the Paducah/McCracken County area as well as surrounding communities, including Brookport, Murray/Calloway County and Livingston and Lyon Counties.

The Paducah Jazz Ensemble performs a mix of swing era and modern styles and has a large library (our “book”) of music from such legendary bands as Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and Duke Ellington. We are available for bookings for corporate parties, dances or other social engagements.

Our band Manager would be happy to discuss with you the possibilities of having The Paducah Jazz Ensemble perform at your next engagement. Call us at (270) 898-0180 or you can email us at paducahjazz@gmail.com
