"Salute to Big Band Vocalists"

Date/Time

Oct 9, 2019
7:30 PM until 9:30 PM

Description

A free concert by Swingtime. Let us take you back in time to the Big Band Era when each band had its own vocalists or vocal group. This concert celebrates the Big Band vocalists like Frank Sinatra, Tex Beneke and the Modernaires, Ray Eberle and the Pied Pipers.

Swingtime, an ensemble of the Melbourne Municipal Band, also presents dances featuring jazz and Big Band standards. Swingtime's dances have long been a favorite of local dancers and jazz lovers looking for a reasonably priced, toe-tapping evening. This 20-piece band is directed by Art Martin, a tenor and baritone saxophonist. Art has performed with the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, Dizzy Gillespie, and The Platters, to name just a few.

Time: 7:30 p.m. (pre-show at 6:30 p.m. by the New Horizons Band)
