Dim Dam Domb’ Big Band

Dim Dam Domb’, the big band of the Centre Musical et Culturel de Chalamont, celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2023!

It’s undisputed that Chalamont is and will remain the highest point in the Dombes region.
Seismic tremors are rare and of low intensity in our beautiful Dombes town, except on Friday evenings from 8.30pm. Dim Dam Domb’ rehearses!

Gene Krupa, Cole Porter, John Lewis, Benny Golson, George and Ira Gershwin, Dizzy Gillespie, Astor Piazzola, Franck Mantooth, Count Basie are all here, and if you pay close attention, you’ll be able to hear Miles Davis and Duke Ellington, who has joined us with magnificent arrangements to celebrate his 100th birthday in 2024!
Since 2000, Raphaël Minfray has led this ensemble with all his sensitivity and immense talent. A pedagogue, composer, arranger and trumpet teacher, he is a Dim Dam Domb’ delight.
