Who Are We?

The Tellico Village Top Notes is a 20 piece band that focuses on playing classic big band music from the 30s and 40s and some more current tunes as well.  We play music performed by Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, and others.  Our instrumentation consists of Saxophones, Clarinets, Trumpets, Trombones, Piano, Drums, Guitar and Bass, as well as both male and female vocalists.  

Our goal is to offer the opportunity for former high school and college musicians to play their instruments in an informal setting. We perform at assisted living facilities, fund raisers, and at the Yacht Club. We are basically an amateur group although some members have more musical experience than others.  If you can play well enough to handle the arrangements and you enjoy playing, please contact us. Tryouts are informal and usually involve participating in a few rehearsals and talking to the band director. Generally, trumpets, saxes, trombones, and clarinets  always have openings. We currently are in need for another trombone player and a guitar player. For practical reasons we are limited to the number of Rhythm instruments and singers we can have, and those are determined on a case-by-case basis.




We rehearse at the Tellico Village Yacht Club (5th floor) on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month.  Rehearsals start at 6:30 pm and last until sometime between 8:30 and 9:00.  


You can contact Jim Wallster at 865-657-9978 or David Adkins at 417-257-4430 if you are interested in joining the band.
