Summer Concert Series: Vintage Jukebox (Jazz)

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Join us to hear some of the best local groups. The Summer Concert Series presented by Facebook features a variety of musical styles from Jazz to Country to hits of today and yesterday. Bring your picnic blanket and dinner, and of course there is always room up front for dancers of all ages.

Vintage Jukebox is a 6-piece swing era big band (2-5 musicians + 1-2 vocalists) comprised of some of the finest jazz musicians in the Bay Area and is one of only a handful of professional big bands in the U.S. focused solely on the music of the Swing era (early 20's-early 60's). The group plays tunes made popular by the famous Orchestras of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Jimmie Lunceford, Fletcher Henderson, and Artie Shaw  as well as the songs of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald to name just a few. 

Their repertoire includes an extensive catalogue of standards from the Great American Songbook, featuring the works of legendary songwriters: Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Cahn & Van Heusen, Julie Styne, the Gershwins and their peers. This truly is a band not to be missed!
