Boilermaker Jazz Band

The Boilermaker Jazz Band interprets the great American song book in their own unique fashion, bringing the swinging sounds of the jazz age and swing era back to life. You’ll hear familiar classics and rarities performed by superb instrumentalists and heartfelt vocalists. From concert halls, festival stages and dances, to elegant soirees, weddings and corporate events, listeners and dancers agree — with their infectious beat and enthusiasm this band can make any crowd move! We also now feature a wonderful theme concert: When Swing was King- A Tribute to Benny Goodman, chronicling the music and life of the great clarinetist.

Leading the Boilermaker Jazz Band on clarinet and vocals is Paul Cosentino, a full time bandleader/performer who founded the band in 1988 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. He is constantly searching for more tunes to add to the band’s classic jazz repertoire — you’ll hear something different every time! Paul plays an antique Albert system clarinet giving him a wonderfully distinctive sound.

The band also features fabulous female singer Jennifer McNulty who will thrill you with her smooth and sultry vocal stylings. From bar room ballads and not-so-standard standards to hot and bubblin’ swing, Jennifer’s performances add a touch of sophistication to the Boilermaker ensemble.

The Boilermaker Jazz Band has performed at major venues throughout the world- including Lincoln Center Midsummer Night’s Swing and the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City, Smithsonian Institute and the International Lindy Hop Championships in Washington DC, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Chicago Summer Dance, The Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland, and the Jeju Island Swing Festival in Korea.

Everywhere they go, they deliver the good feelings that real jumpin’ jazz can create. Paul and the Boilermakers have recorded ten critically acclaimed CD’s and have received rave reviews for their excellent live performances. The Boilermakers have been featured on radio shows across the country and overseas, including a National Public Radio Jazz Series that was broadcast on over 50 stations. The Boilermaker Jazz Band’s music was recently featured on the hit Fox TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” for a fantastic Lindy Hop routine.

The Boilermaker Jazz Band performs for festivals, concerts, clubs, dances, seminars, corporate events, weddings, and parties of any kind. We also offer dynamic, informative school and children’s programs and specialized “theme” performances — just ask !

The band is available in a variety of formations to suit your needs and budget.
