Join us for an afternoon with the Eagles Stage Band, a big band jazz group from Berkshire County. Founded in 2000 playing swing, ballads and other big band era favorites, the 20 piece Eagles Stage Band regularly performs locally at various events. Their repertoire includes a wide variety of dance and jazz tunes maintaining its primary focus on music from the big band era. Since 2018, the band has been led by Dr. James Stakenas, who played in the Don Bastarache Big Band for ten years before moving to the Berkshires.
