The Band

One More Once​ Big Band


“One More Once” is an 18-piece big band consisting of some of North Jersey’s top musicians.  The Clifton-based group was founded in 2008 in an effort to have a new group of fresh, young musicians who share a love of jazz and want to keep the great music of our past alive, while adding flavors of some more contemporary big band sounds.  


The group presents music from all different eras and styles, ranging from the big band era of Glenn Miller and Count Basie to Stan Kenton, Thad Jones and Maynard Ferguson favorites, as well as playing contemporary music from composers within the band.  


Through the years, “One More Once” has performed at concerts, fundraisers, school functions, corporate parties and town events throughout the North Jersey area, including a monthly event at Trumpets Jazz Club which features opening acts from local schools.  For booking information, please contact Tim or Joe. We have performed with world renowned artists such as Rufus Reid, Wycliffe Gordon, Denis DiBlasio, John Riley, Dave Stryker, Ralph Bowen and Conrad Herwig, among others.
