Wow! What can I say about big band music!
This is it! Out of all the music I have performed over the years...this is the one I love the most.
It fits like a glove and the feeling that you get when there is an entire orchestra backing you is indescribable!
I fell in love with big band music when I was about 35 years old. I was asked to cover for an ailing big band singer for the Blue Stars Orchestra in Biloxi Ms. Things went well, and I became their permanent singer. It's become my passion and I'd rather sing this type of music above all others. Oh, I still like everything else...
but singing standards presents a challenge vocally. Hard to hide mistakes without loud rock music sounds. Anyway, here are some photos...
I Didn't have anything to say....okay?
(besides...what was I going to say underneath each picture: This is me
with the big band... oh yeah...and this is me with the big band again...this is the big band and me and this is me with the girls and the big band...duh)
