Their library of more than 200 songs includes Swing, Latin, Rock, Waltzes and Ballads, and arrangements from Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Woody Herman. The membership of this dynamic group consists of musicians from many areas of Arkansas, all of whom aspire to the highest level of musicianship and are dedicated to the perpetuation of the "Big Band" sound. Band members have performed with some of the biggest stars of yesteryear including Tommy Dorsey, Stan Kenton, Glenn Miller, Patti Page and more.

Stardust performs music for dancing and listening once a month in the Crystal Ballroom of the Arlington Hotel in Downtown Hot Springs, AR. Admission is $10 per person with no dress code. Most show up in casual or dress casual attire, however many wear black tie and evening gowns. See our schedule page for dates and times.
