from the George Rose Big Band:

On April 3rd, The George Rose Big Band presents
its 6th annual concert at New Covenant Church Hall,
22 Holiday Dr. Brantford.  [next to Home Depot]
This series of concerts has been very popular with big band fans
in the area as it always brings back memories of years gone by,
as well as presenting some exciting newer tunes presented
in the big band style.
This year the band will feature guest vibraphonist Dave O’Neill.
Each concert is highlighted by a “sing along” (song sheets supplied)
allowing audience participation.
This year’s concert will be a matinée, commencing at 3.00pm,
so as to avoid night driving and be finished in time for dinner.
Tickets are available at PA Music (139 Charing Cross St.),
from band members, or at the door,
and the price is still $20.00.
For further information or large ticket orders,
call George at 519-752-4013.

from thegeorgerosebigband.com:

Starting out as an extremely fine swing band
the band’s recordings trace the music from the original swing
to contemporary R&B, soul, and a bit of rock in the 1997 recordings.
This progression led to the present stage where the band is playing more jazz-flavoured
arrangements, show tunes and famous vocalist hits.
