Beginning in 2015, Cecilia Ferneborg sought to bring together some of her favorite musicians to create an experience for dancers meshing small group swing with big band sensibilities. So The Big Time was born and together the group has logged thousands of miles on the road bringing music to lindy and blues dancers across the United States. Members of The Big Time are some of the most sought after musicians in the dance scene and can be seen playing with bandleaders such as Michael Gamble, Josh Fialkoff and the Fried Bananas, Jonathan Stout, and Solomon Douglas. Their debut album, “Anna Cecilia & The Big Time LIVE” (2016), was recorded in front of a live audience and perfectly captures the energy of being on the dance floor in front of the band. The Big Time brings excitement and sensuality through jazz standards, reimagined popular songs, blues arrangements, and original music causing an infectious atmosphere for dancing!
The Big Time has played for numerous dance events and Lindy and Blues exchanges, including CHEX (Charleston, SC), DCLX (Washington DC), Red Hot Blues & BBQ (Washington DC), and SwingAus (Lancaster, PA). As a side-person, Cecilia has played for dance exchanges in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Orlando, Huntsville, Boston and more. When she's not on the road leading the Big Time, Cecilia also writes and performs pop, jazz, and folk music under her own name: Cecilia Ferneborg.
