Maury County’s own Big Band

Who We Are

The Columbia, TN based “Merchants of Cool” was formed in 2006 and held its first venue that summer in Mt. Pleasant, TN. Today our repertoire includes more than 260 songs of the 1930’s and 40’s as well as some pop and rock.
Our musicians are all volunteers and come from various professions. The love of this music and the desire to preserve it are common bonds among the members. The Merchants of COOL Big Band is a member of the American Big Band Preservation Society. We hope you will come out to one of our performances and listen as we play set after set of music of the Big Band Era that you’ll never forget!
