Ernie Bucio's Little Big Band & Gottschalk's Music Center Concert Band




The Band


Past Events










The Ernie Bucio family of groups have different rates for hire.  There are a few variables that go into the cost of booking a group.


1) One factor is the season.  The nicer the weather the higher the demand for Ernie's groups. Ernie's groups are busiest during the late spring/summer & winter holidays.  If you have an event during this part of the year make sure to book your group early!


2) What is the old adage?  Location, location, location?  The Little Big Bands base of operations is in and around the Modesto/Stockton central valley area.  Gigs outside the "local area" will take into account travel time, fuel, equipment and sometimes personnel.  These factors are considerations for gigs in Fresno, Sacramento & the San Francisco Bay Area.


Regardless of your situation Karen and the bands are very flexible with their pricing and 99% of the time something can be "worked out."  The Ernie Bucio family of groups are professionals and pricing does not effect the quality of the group.  It is always quality first


To inquire about a possible gig or the availability of a certain group, you can email Karen Bucio at or give her a call at 209-222-7467.
