Rock Prairie Big Band & Beloit College Jazz Band Perform
Just saw this in the Beloit Daily News:
The Rock Prairie Big Band and the Beloit College Jazz Band will perform at 7:30 p.m. April 8 in Eaton Chapel, on the Beloit College campus.
The event is free and open to the public; donations will be accepted at the door.
The two bands will perform several selections separately before teaming on a few additional songs. The Rock Prairie Big Band, directed by Jeff Suarez, will perform “Stompin’ at the Savoy,” by Benny Goodman; “Ko-Ko” by Duke Ellington, and other popular jazz tunes. Under the direction of John Meyers, the Beloit College Jazz Band’s offering will include “Swingin’ Shepherd Blues,” by Natalie Cole and “Outback Boogie,” by Les Taylor.
Another highlight of the performance will be a special appearance by the College Street Singers as directed by Susan Rice.
So, live swing dance music? Very cool! And where else but in the neighborhood.
If it’s a nice evening I think we’ll walk.
Added to the calendar.
