The Kansas All Star Big Band has emerged! The All Stars include the very best jazz musicians in the state of Kansas. Many of our members are jazz educators from Hays to Wichita to Lawrence and everywhere in between. Several musicians have doctorate degrees in jazz studies or their respective instruments.

They all have a connection to Hutchinson, KS in some way. Whether they are former students, natives of the area, or highly sought-after talent making a rare appearance, they are pleased to call Hutch home.
