CR Burdan Shades and Hues: Friday, September 18th @ 7pm @ the Market Garage Patio
Over thirty-five years performing as a singer/ songwriter/ musician, playing a wide variety of musical styles. Now, with my new band, and the release of my self-produced CD, "All Shades, All Hues", I am focusing on the blues, and the influence that the blues have had on the music that I love.Several years ago I had the distinct privilege of traveling to Memphis and the Mississippi Delta, to experience for the first time the birthplace of the blues and rock ‘n’ roll. My week in that region greatly heightened my appreciation for the artists and musical roots that sprung from this fertile ground, and now, when I listen to the music that I love, I realize how much of it has been influenced by the blues.
USAF Commanders Jazz Ensemble: Friday, September 18th @ 7pm @ the Market Plaza
The Commanders Jazz Ensemble, part of the US Air Force Band of the Golden West from Travis Air Force Base California, carries on the American musical tradition of the great traveling big bands, yet offers a lot more than the big band sounds. Under the direction of Master Sergeant Jeremiah True, this energetic group of highly-trained professional airmen-musicians offers an entertaining show you won't soon forget!
During a concert you’re likely to hear the music of jazz legends Duke Ellington, Woody Herman and Count Basie as well as contemporary big band leaders and composers such as Gordon Goodwin and Maria Schneider. And no concert would be complete without a tribute to the late Major Glenn Miller and his famous Army Air Corp band. Featuring outstanding soloists as well as a superb vocalist, The Commanders is an ensemble capable of delivering a powerful musical performance.
