“Jazzy Little Big Band

With a background in classical music, playing oboe, flute and sax, Angela O’Neill’s roots are from a small town in the Napa Valley. Angela grew up in a musical family; both her mom and dad were musicians and in musical theatre. Her mom played the piano beautifully.  

“Our home was always filled with music. I fell in love with Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and Nancy Wilson at my dad’s knee while he corrected history papers for the kids at Santa Rosa High School. My sister and my mom have beautiful voices, and we sang and had my parents’ music on everyday, all the time,” says Angela.

Since 2014, Angela and Team Outrageous8 have been playing ALL over California. They met and got together while performing in Big Bands in Los Angeles, and decided to put a small group together to honor the Contemporary Jazzy Big Band Sound that people have come to expect from the Outrageous8!

Angela and the band have produced and released a number of very successful records, and they have done very well on the Jazz and Big Band charts. Their first album, 2016’s Angela O’Neill and the Outrageous8 – Live at the VFW, was a collaborative album with her band including unique and custom arrangements by Harry Smallenburg. Since then we’ve produced a bunch more collaborative projects.

We are so honored to be headlining the City of Burbank’s Fall Festival!

In early 2003 he moved to Los Angeles, California, where he started actively performing and recording albums, giving concerts at such places as Ford Theater and Barnsdale Arts Center. His repertoire also includes interpretations of Western jazz and pop music along with traditional Armenian and classical songs with unique and fresh perspectives and arrangements.
