5 Star Jazz Band is a non-profit community band dedicated to providing Kansas City's top young musicians, age 12-21, the unique opportunity to perform in a professional-caliber jazz ensemble. Performances are scheduled year round throughout the metropolitan area, from local community, charity, and holiday events to professional venues such as KC Riverfest, Italian Festival, and our bi-annual "Tribute to the Troops" at Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Zona Rosa.

Our high-energy repertoire of over 100+ charts includes Big Band, Swing, Jazz, Blues, Funk and Latin styles. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights and Sunday afternoons at the First Christian Church of North Kansas City. Participation is audition based. All members are encouraged to participate in their school band programs. Contact us any time to learn more, schedule a gig, or sign up to come play!
