With only four concerts remaining before a long summer break, we are excited to pack them all with memorable big band music.
Saturday is Mother’s Day and boy, do we have a show for you!
Of course we’re playing Mama Used To Do the Cha Cha, composed by Steve Allen and arranged by Tom Kubis. A new chart for us!
Vocalist Deanne Matley will be singing Pennies From Heaven, Surrender (Tomorrow Never Dies) as recorded by K.D. Lang for the James Bond movie, They Can’t Take That Away From Me, Misty, and Let’s Fall in Love.
We’re also performing these tunes:
- Madly, a 1999 Grammy Award winning tribute to Duke Ellington written by Don Sebesky
- A fabulous Latin selection and new chart for the band called Latintensity
- A Time For Love, a beautiful ballad composed by Johnny Mandel and arranged by Hank Levy
- A funky chart composed by and recorded by Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band Hit the Ground Running
- Another new chart written by Tom Kubis called Marie’s Shuffle
- Lead trumpet player Jim Murray will be featured on Land of Make Believe, recorded by Chuck Mangione
- And a Stan Kenton signature selection — and new chart for Prime Time — Artistry in Rhythm
Join us at the Ironwood Stage and Grill! Call 403-269-5581 for reservations.
Can’t wait to see you!
