Queen City Big Band is back, proud to present a fresh program for the Jazz & Blues Club for 2018. The performance will present the Big Band playing a selection of some of Sammy Nestico’s finest arrangements. Sammy has been arranging and composing since 1941 and is still active today at the age of 92. Famous for his stunning arrangements for the Count Basie Band, Frank Sinatra, Sara Vaughan and many others. As orchestrator, he has worked on nearly seventy television programs, including Mission: Impossible, Mannix, Charlie's Angels, and The Mod Squad.
Queen City will also be featuring a newly formed vocal group, 5 up and coming young vocalists singing in the style of the New York Voices and Manhattan Transfer. The group are calling themselves “Fresh Air”, this will be their first public performance – not to be missed.
Backing this program up will be Helen Clague-Healey and Andrew Curtis, Queen City Big Band’s fantastic and dedicated vocalists with a selection of their favourites for your enjoyment.
Fun and variety from the Queen City Big Band, we love the support the Auckland Jazz & Blues Club provides the band – see you there!
