    One O'Clock Lab Band

    The seven-time Grammy-nominated ensemble of the internationally acclaimed University of North Texas jazz studies program is known for exceptional individual musicianship and tight ensemble performances. Concerts feature the wealth of compositions and arrangements from the UNT jazz library written by current and former North Texas students, compositions by Grammy-nominated composers Neil Slater, Steve Wiest, and Richard DeRosa (jazz composition faculty), the Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson libraries (both housed exclusively at North Texas), and classics from the libraries of Count Basie, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, and Bob Brookmeyer, in addition to the finest contemporary writers in jazz.

    The One O’Clock Lab Band has toured internationally with great success over the decades, performing in Russia, Mexico, England, Australia, Portugal, Finland, Norway, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Poland, Ireland, and Thailand, where the band performed for the King of Thailand and His Majesty chose to “sit in” with the band. The band has toured the major jazz festivals including Cork/Guinness, Montreux (first college band to do so), Vienne, North Sea, Monterey, Spoleto, Pori and Umbria. In 2010 the band attended the 52nd Grammy Awards while touring in California. The One O’Clock has performed by Presidential invitation at the White House, joined on stage by Duke Ellington and Stan Getz. The band frequently appears in major jazz venues such as Birdland (NYC), Blues Alley (DC), Catalina's (LA), and as the headliner at jazz festivals, music conferences, and concerts hosted by numerous fine arts series, colleges and high schools across the United States and around the world.
