Big is better
If youve ever stood near a big band when its in full swing you will always remember the experience. Horns blaring; drums, percussion and bass dancing a boogie in your chest; the strings soaring higher than a Nimbin dream; triangle triangulating... ah, live music heaven.
The SCU Big Band (pictured) has been giving such experiences to audiences at jazz clubs and gigs throughout the region.
This 18-piece band is led by saxophonist Steve Saxton. (Perfect name for a sax player, yeah?) The SCU Big Band incorporates the sounds of the Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and Glen Miller orchestras with contemporary big band classics and that magical something of its own. (It can be very funky.)
The SCU Big Band will play at the Lismore Heights Bowling Club this Sunday, October 15, from 2pm. What a cool way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Entry is $8/5. For more info phone 6622 5912.
