The Freese Brothers Big Band was formed in 1982 by the four Freese Brothers: Jack, Bill, George, and Courtland, who began playing music together in a family performing troupe in the 1930’s. The purposes of the Band are to support and encourage the development of the musical talents of the public (especially young musicians) and its members, and to foster an appreciation of music of all eras.

The men and women of the Freese Brothers Big Band live and work throughout Central and Southern New Hampshire. Band members come from diverse professional and musical backgrounds and include talented local high school students. They blend their years of experience to produce the distinctive sound of the Freese Brothers Big Band. Some of our high school students have gone on to college to study music to use in their future careers. 

Their members are volunteers and their performance fees maintain band equipment, pay travel expenses, and support the Freese Brothers Big Band Memorial Scholarship Fund in memory of our departed musical friends. The Band has awarded over $40,000 in scholarships to help area high school musicians improve their musical abilities.
