Our Story

The Sidemen Big Band is a
tight group unit of quality
musicians founded by
Wendell and Lorrie Brenner.

"We emphasize that  we have no individual band leader, because we are all professionals with significant band experience.  We all know our way around our instruments, making the Sidemen a very open and proficient band."

Yes, the Sidemen are just that . . . professional musicians enjoying what they do best ~ playing great music and having fun doing it!  This fine musical group is a powerhouse of sound, geared to play many styles of music.  There are several groups that can be formed within the Sidemen, such as an 18-piece Jazz Big Band, a 9-Piece Society Band, or a 6-Piece Jazz Combo
