Special Engagement: New Guard Big Band w/ Dennis Rowland

The Band will perform two completely different knockout shows in one night, both featuring the great vocalist Dennis Rowland, who toured with the Count Basie Orchestra for seven years. On the first show, The Band will play many of Basie’s most familiar and beloved works. The second show will offer exciting selections from the pens of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Bob Freedman and more. Note: there is a 25% discount when you buy both shows!
