The swinging sounds of the jazz age come alive with the Great
Plains Jazz Orchestra (GPJO)! Led by Keith Woolery, this acclaimed group
delivers sweet rhythms of jazz classics and rarities through superior
instrumentals and heartfelt vocals. With their unique brand of Americana and
jazz festivity, the GPJO brings the party to you! This fun, professional group
began more than 20 years ago as the Boeing Jazz Band, now carrying on as GPJO
with the ideals of a community-based organization.
GPJO interprets the great American song book in their own unique
fashion, bringing the swinging sounds of the jazz age back to life. From
concert halls to dances, festival stages to elegant soirees, listeners and
dancers agree — with their infectious beat and enthusiasm this band can make
any crowd move!
GPJO has accompanied and
toured with the Wichita Grand Opera company, performed for the Quiet Birdman
Pilots Convention, the Charles Olsen Scholarship Fund Concert, the Kansas
League of Municipalities, the Kansas Aviation Museum, and the Sweet Adelines.
Performing for festivals, concerts, clubs, dances, seminars, corporate events,
weddings, and parties of any kind. Everywhere they go, they deliver the good
feelings that real jumpin’ jazz can create.
