The Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble (SDSE) is a Cape Cod – based “Big Band” that features the music of the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. We thoroughly enjoy playing and singing the songs made famous by such bandleaders as Glen Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and others. While we showcase the music of this great period, our repertoire also includes contemporary pieces from “The Great American Songbook”. The original music library for The Sound Dunes was donated by Gabriel Gouveia, former Bandleader of the Boston-based big band, The Comeback Kids. We are very grateful to Gabriel for this important contribution to the success of The Sound Dunes. We continue to add to our library based on customer suggestions and band member inputs

We also incorporate versions of “Name That Tune” and Oldies Trivia, SDSE Style, to further engage our audiences for a fun fulled afternoon or evening event.
