This is the website for Finest Hour, based in Omaha, NE.
Finest Hour was created in 1977 by Jeff Sauvageau and Greg Boulay. Since then, the band membership has evolved through dozens of line-ups. In the Fall of 2008 as part of a Creighton Prep class reunion, Jeff and Greg invited the original Finest Hour players who reside throughout the country back to Omaha for a reunion gig. Bitten once again by the "band bug", Jeff and Greg approached a number of local players to form the current line-up. The first gig with the current line-up was November 4, 2008. Since then, Finest Hour has played a variety of public and private performances including the Catholic Charities IrishFest, the Aksarben Ball, and Governor Pete Ricketts Inauguration Ball. What started as a single great sax player, Matt Wallace, evolved to a full blown, smokin' hot horn section called the "Broadband Horns" by late 2009. Michael Pujado joined us on congas and timbales in 2011.
The band members share a passion for music, but also have very busy lives. Thus, the number of performances is by design generally limited to 1 or 2 nights per month. This "rationing" allows us to maintain focus on non-band activities, but also assures our audiences that we view each and every night as a precious opportunity to play the music we love.
Finest Hour is available for private events (weddings, corporate events, fund-raisers, etc.) on a limited basis.
