About

Since the band was formed, the Esquires aimed to both honor the music of the late 1930s and 1940s, and promote the teamwork and growth that musicians achieve through music. In 1967, Stan Kenton, one of the original board members of the Esquires Foundation, formed the Esquires Music Foundation to give generations of students access to and training in big band swing music. The Foundation promotes their teaching program offered to have young musicians rehearse with the Esquires and gain experience with professional musicians.
