ONE MORE ONCE BIG BAND
One More Once is an 18-piece jazz ensemble that celebrates the best of big band tradition with a contemporary flare, consisting of some of the top musicians in the Tri-state area. John Molloy and Joe Verderese founded the band in early 2008. Based out of Clifton and Nutley, NJ, the band has been co-directed by Joe and Tim Hayward since 2010. We present music from all different eras and styles, ranging from the big band era of Glenn Miller and Count Basie to Thad Jones, Mel Lewis and Maynard Ferguson favorites. We are also inclusive of contemporary music from composers within the band and other artists.
Through The Years
One More Once has performed at concerts, fundraisers, school functions, weddings, corporate and town events, all throughout the North Jersey area.

Chapel Concert Series
Don Bosco Prep - Ramsey, NJ
The 7:30pm performance will be the culmination of a day of jazz with students from Don Bosco and Cresskill High School. OMO musicians will present clinics to the students, we'll have a group rehearsal and a concert - ending with a 2-tune finale that will bring all three bands to the stage together. Caleb Rumley was commissioned to write a brand new piece called "Easy Times" for the event.
