Welcome to our web site!

This is the official homepage of the "Northern Lights Jazz Orchestra".  We are located in Bellingham, WA. U.S.A.  We have been in existence for 6 years now, playing concerts, dances and a couple of festivals. The musicians in the band are all experienced pro and semi-professional players as is reflected in our sound.  Our instrumentation is the standard compliment of 4 trpts. 4 troms. 5 saxes, 4 rhythm and a female vocalist.  Our forte is swing music in the style of Count Basie, Les Brown, Duke Ellington, as with many other big name bands.  Please have a look around the site and sign in too, if you would. You will find many photos and some sound files in the side board on the left.  
Thank you!

The NLJO is available in the Great Pacific Northwest for dances, celebrations, festivals, concerts, just about any event that wants to make a big splash! We have played wedding reception parties at the Bellwether Hotel Ballroom - Squalicum Harbor, Bellingham, WA. Dances at the Lakeway Inn Ballroom, Bellingham, have been a big success! To book your next event, call Paul at (360)223-8845 or e-mail to
