Dubbed the little band with the big band sound, The Music Men band has been playing nearly 40 years now in clubs and venues here in Central Illinois and the St Louis area. All members of the band have been from the general area of central and south central Illinois and the metro St. Louis area. The music consists of the great standards of the 40s and 50s, swing, latin, waltzes, polkas, jazz, Dixieland, some 50s and 60s rock 'n roll, and a few more modern era songs destined to become classics. The quartet's current lineup features Scott Fischer (from Staunton) on drums and vocals, Bob Boehmke (from Springfield) on Cordovox (keyboard and bass) , Chuck Cunningham (from Peoria) on trumpet, and Gary Moore (from Nokomis) on tenor sax, clarinet, and flute.
