LACS: The Olney Big Band

June 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The Olney Big Band is back in action celebrating their 20th anniversary. Their 17 piece ensemble – plus two superb vocalists – will play fabulous tunes from Big Band’s Golden Age and beyond. Dance away to the hits from Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra, and all the greats, including a special tribute to Sammy Nestico (composer and arranger for Count Basie, among his many other contributions).

Get ready to snap your fingers, tap your feet, and hum those songs all the way home!

Over the past 20 years the Band has performed at a wide array of events and venues, including Blues Alley, the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, Strathmore, BlackRock Center for the Arts, Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival, Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo Park, Olney Theatre Center, Washington DC Mormon Temple Visitors’ Center, weddings, and numerous community festivals, high school dances and concerts,. Their  CDs have been featured on In the Mood Big Band with Ken Jackson (WYPR 88.1).
