I have started a new community jazz big band, headquartered in the Littleton/Centennial area. I started and directed a big band in Rochester NY for 8 years and am ready to do the same here! Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings, 7-9 pm. We will play diverse music and performances - pop/dance music at summer festivals, ballroom dances, challenging modern jazz concerts, and even jazz holiday music! Most of all, I want to have a really fun, solid group!
We need 1-2 people in each section, plus people to share each of the parts in the rhythm section - drums, piano, bass and guitar. Our approach is to have extra people in each section and on parts so that we do not have to seek subs every time someone can't make a gig. We'll either rotate gigs, charts or parts.
Feel free to join this meetup-group, but band membership will be dependent on opening and audition.
