AUSTRALIA DAY 2010 (Melb) – Henley Landing: The B# Big Band

January 11th, 2010


  • 26 January 2010
  • Time: 12:00pm – 2:30pm
Melbourne’s most exciting swingin’ Big Band brings together some of Australia’s best jazz and session musicians to perform the classic arrangements of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and other Big Cats of the 30s, 40s and 50s.
In addition, guest vocalists perform tunes made famous by Anita O’Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Peggy Lee amongst others.
Many of the arrangements B# has acquired, or had carefully arranged, are well known classics! Some have for many years been ‘lost’ classics, not performed by other Big Bands around Melbourne, and rarely in Australia, if at all.
Bring a rug, a picnic lunch and enjoy three great sets from the B# Big Band!
