Description

Clarinet prodigy Dave Bennett leads his All-Star Septet through Benny Goodman’s big hits and swing-era classics: “Moonglow,” “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Body and Soul,” “Slipped Disc,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” and many others. Bennett brings new life to the music of the “King of Swing” with incredible technique, expression and sensitivity. Vocals made famous by such Goodman singers as Peggy Lee and Helen Forrest are “sung and swung” by jazz singer Anne Seabury. Couples who love to dance are encouraged to come in their best “swing-era” clothes and join the band on the dance floor! (Space is limited!)
