The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts Presents:
Swing Shift Big Band: Blue Eyes Meets Basie
This program includes favourites such as Fly Me to the Moon, One for My Baby, My Kind of Town, and Sweet Georgia Brown. Swing Shift Big Band was formed in August of 1996 to preserve and celebrate the sounds and energy of the big band era. It is evident that they have succeeded. The band has now become one of the top-rated big bands not only in Ontario, but also in all of Canada. Over 20 radio stations are now playing the band’s music worldwide, and music downloads from around the world also indicate people’s enjoyment of this band’s recordings.
