Members of the orchestra come mostly from Krško and wider Posavje Region. The orchestra’s repertoire consists of wide selection of songs and different music styles: festival orchestra music, dance music, swing, Latin, fusion, funk and jazz rock music. 

On an amateur level the Big Band Krško is one of the best Slovenian big bands. Many of first members of Big Band Krško are now graduates of European and world’s jazz academies who work professionally in Slovenian and international jazz and pop scene (Aleš Suša, Miha Koretič, Lovro Ravbar, Bojan Zupančič, Rok Lopatič, Matjaž Zorko, Janez Gabrič, Rok Štirn, Jaka Kopač, Manca Klanjšček, Tjaša Fabjančič), and play with renowned and popular groups such as The Fool Cool Jazz Orchestra, Big Band RTV Slovenija, Symphony Orchestra RTV Slovenija, LeelooJammais, Laibach, Demolition Group, Soulfood Inc., Glam, Magnifico & Turbolenza, Tinkara Kovač & Band and so on).

The orchestra likes to perform for the local people every year. They organize concerts and play at different festivals.

The festivals took place in 1994, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2004. The Big Band already performed all across Slovenia at many festivals such as Festival Lent – Jazz Lent and The Big Stage at Lent; Musical Autumn in Samobor, Croatia; Trnfest, Ljubljana, Slo.
