Bandemonium (aka the SS Concert Band) and Swing Shift, Salt Spring’s own 17 piece big band, present “Together Again” at Artspring, Friday December 6 at 7:30pm. The fun and family friendly program of familiar music, to warm listener’s hearts as winter approaches, will also feature Clark Saunders and Sue Newman as guest vocalists.
Swing Shift will begin the concert performing swing, Latin, pop, seasonal, and funk music of Count Basie, Tito Puente, Eddie Harris, Frank Loesser and the Beatles. Bandemonium will begin the second half alone, playing familiar favourites of Handel, Elgar and Tchaikovsky along with a few tunes to get you in the mood for the holiday season. The grand finale will see both bands united, as they play big band medleys of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, and holiday favorites together. Tickets for the event are available at Artspring: adults $20 and students $5.
