The Dungeon Big Band is made up of 17 amazing musicians who find their raison d’etre in the power of the big band.
‘Blues In The Night’ features the title tune (Ella Fitzgerald’s version) with Heather Price swooning the vocals, Glenn Miller’s ‘Moonlight Serenade’, Benny Goodman’s ‘Bugle Call Rag’ and ‘Goodbye’, Count Basie’s ‘C Jam Blues’ and Duke Ellington’s arrangement of Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’.
To make this event even more memorable, Peter Guy (Newcastle Christ Church Cathedral’s organist) will be joining the big band, led by Rod Barnes, on Adamstown Uniting Church’s pipe organ. This is surely a first! and has inspired Peter as well as the big band musos.
There will also be a full team of technicians livestreaming this concert for those who can’t make the venue in person!
This concert is part of Newcastle Music Festival 2022.
