The Rowan Big Band All Stars is an 18-piece community big band in the tradition of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and other great early twentieth-century bandleaders, home-based in Landis, NC and specializing in Great American Songbook favorites and “big band swing.” First organized in 2006, the Band is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving this uniquely American style of music and sharing our appreciation of it with others. The members of the band volunteer their talents for performances, and the net proceeds from their musical performances are used to support worthwhile local charities.
From the beginning, founder Ron Turbyfill’s vision for the Band has been not only to keep the heritage of big band music alive, but also to support local charitable causes by providing quality entertainment for charity events and fundraisers. Over the years the band has performed at benefits for charities such as Communities in Schools, Speedway Childrens Charities, the USO, American Cancer Society, The American Legion Auxiliary, W.G. Hefner Veterans’ Medical Center and others.
