LUDLOW, Vt. – Want to hear some swinging music – better, dance to it? On Saturday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Heald Auditorium of the Ludlow Town Hall, that’s exactly what you’ll experience. The Enerjazz Big Band will be cooking up a storm of great music for you.
FOLA decided it was time you had a chance to listen – and dance if you’re so inclined – to the music of the swing and big band era.
The 18 members of EnerJazz, Vermont’s high energy big band, are dedicated to playing your favorite hits of the swing era in their original style, using the original arrangements whenever possible. In addition to the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, and others, the band’s repertoire also includes arrangements by contemporary big bands from Maynard Ferguson to Gordon Goodwin as well as jazz interpretations of popular tunes from other genres.
Whether you’re up on your feet and dancing or just tapping your toes and listening, you’ll undoubtedly be entertained by this group of hardworking, fun loving musicians. You can listen to the music of Enerjazz at www.enerjazz.net or visit its Facebook page. But better than that, just plan on getting your dancing feet in shape for this great band event.
