Montclair Women's Big Band

Thursday, December 10, 2015

Join us at the library for a swingin’ after-hours event featuring some of the best jazzwomen in the San Francisco Bay Area. This 17-piece ensemble delivers a brassy, blues-drenched wallop!

The Montclair Women's Big Band was a huge hit when they performed at the Menlo Park Library last year -- and we are proud to be having them back!

This free event is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Menlo Park Library.

About the Montclair Women's Big Band
The Montclair Women's Big Band was founded in 1998 by veteran trumpeter and bandleader Ellen Seeling, with producer Barbara Price. With a vivid cast of some of the best jazzwomen in the San Francisco Bay Area, the band combines an audacious sense of swing, tight ensemble work, and inspired solos. All About Jazz claims "the Montclair Women's Big Band is one of the most formidable jazz ensembles on the West Coast....this is premium-grade big band jazz, rigorously blended for high mileage and maximum pleasure."  The band’s high-profile performances have included gigs for the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and the San Jose Jazz Festival, as well as performances for Hillary Clinton, and NPR’s "Piano Jazz."
