Swingtet8 with Johnny Angel” – July 12

July26 DooWopJuly 12 – 4 to 6 PM at Gateway Middle School auditorium.

Swingin’ with An Angel is a Swingtet8 program that features Johnny Angel of the Halos fame, together with vocalist Debbie Zugates, performing the music of the big band swing era.

Swingtet8 is a band of five horns and a three-rhythm section that is committed to the swing era, uniquely using arrangements that capture the sound and energy of the big bands with less than half the number of musicians – thus becoming the little big band. Although the band’s foundation reflects the harmony and improvisations of swing/jazz, its music encompasses all the rhythms and tempos of dance.

Bandleader Joe Lagnese arranges the music and plays the alto sax and clarinet. Swingtet 8’s programs include the Musical Evolution of Jazz, music of Cole Porter, theme songs of the 40’s. and 50’s big bands, music for dancing, and Johnny Angel’s singing frank Sinatra and other swing Era vocalists’ songs.

Fans of the big band sound and the music of the Great American Songbook who attend will be rewarded with a very entertaining and uplifting listening experience.
