Composed of musicians affiliated with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, CA., BBT was started in 1998 when Brenda Goforth Adelante, Patrick Olguin, and others, provided music for holiday parties at JPL.
Packed with Ph.D.s, this scientific swing band performs a play list that leans heavily toward the heavens. The band features selections mostly from the swing era, with a dose of 50's Sinatra and 60's hipsters. You'll be tapping your toes and swaying to the rhythms of songs made popular by Goodman, Dorsey, Ellington and Basie, and made oh so memorable by the unique vocal stylings of the likes of Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald.
