Desert Swing has been providing Big Band music to the Sierra Vista community since 1985. An 18 piece orchestra, Desert Swing plays a variety of music. They range from the old standard swing songs such as “In the Mood” to more contemporary charts made famous by the likes of Maynard Ferguson. Under the direction of General Manager Ray Caldwell, and Music Director Rick Weisberg, Desert Swing has played many concerts at both the Veterans Memorial Park and the Ethel H. Berger Center, local weddings, New Years Eve celebrations, and at the Tucson Country Club. Desert Swing musicians come from a variety of backgrounds to include Air Force and Army retirees, DOD employees at Ft Huachuca, active MI band members, and both current and retired Music Teachers. Musicians are from the Sierra Vista area and as far away as El Frida and Douglas.
