Concert: Blue Skies Band

Friday, June 1, 2018

Swing classics performed by the NW's premier big band, with vocal trio The Jewel Tones.

Tap your toes or get up and dance to swing classics played live by the 17-piece Blue Skies Band, the Pacific Northwest’s premier big band. This show will also feature the delightful vocal harmonies of the Jewel Tones, inspired by the great trios of the '30s and '40s such as the Boswell Sisters and the Andrews Sisters.

Under the direction of Devin Wright, the Blue Skies Band plays many of the original arrangements made famous by Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Woody Herman, and Glenn Miller.
