Big Band Blast Of The Bluegrass is a show which primarily features the swinging melodies and luscious harmonies of Big Band music as well as other large ensemble groups like Brass Bands and Jazz Orchestras. The music of Big Bands has been prevalent all the way from the speakeasies of the the 1920's and 30's to our current generation. The goal of this show is to explore this music and how it has changed over time and taken on a variety of forms. Expect to hear works from the most notable Big Band names such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Glen Miller as well as more recent artists like Kamasi Washington, Snarky Puppy, and the Jacob Mann Big Band. If Jazz, Funk, and even a hint of Latin fits your taste then I'm sure you'll want to tune in. Hope you enjoy!
