BLUES IN THE NIGHT
Thursday August 4, 7.30pm, Adamstown Arts at Adamstown Uniting Church
Dungeon Big Band
Heather Price (bass and vocals)
Peter Guy (organ)
The Dungeon Big Band is an agglomeration 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 (musicians!).
