O'Gara's was the first place that Beasley's Big Band played in public and we've never left since. The only thing that can keep us away is if O'Gara's were torn down. Sadly, that's exactly what's going to happen. O'Gara's will be back, rebuilt a bit smaller, but we'll play our last gig there on Tuesday, August 7th. It's going to be a hard show, to be sure. Please come out and close out an era with us.
Since 1991, Beasley's Big Band has been playing big band jazz with power and drive.
For more than 20 years, we've been playing at the Wabasha Street Caves and O'Gara's Bar & Grill. At the historic Wabasha Street Caves, you can swing dance to Beasley's Big Band on the third Thursday of just about every month. If you'd like to listen to Beasley's Big Band in an intimate club setting, stop by O'Gara's. We also play for corporate parties, swing dances, charity balls, wedding dances, and summer concerts in city parks. Think about hiring the band for your next event!
