The Route 66 Jazz Orchestra is a 20-piece group dedicated to the preservation and promotion of “Big Band” jazz through performance, education, and community involvement. Founded in 1969 by Dr. Ron Stillwell as the Meramec Jazz Lab Band, Route 66 Jazz continues to act as jazz ambassadors for the community. Led by retired music educator Bob Boedges of Normandy and Collinsville High Schools, this incredible group of dedicated musicians comes from all walks of life, including business professionals, music educators, and students, bound together by their passion for big band music and the common desire to spread the word that jazz music is alive and well.
