69th Annual Summer Band Concert Series- Murphy’s Music Center Big Band feat. Almost Sinatra
May 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
May 27- Murphy’s Music Center Tribute Band feat. “Almost Sinatra”
When the 20-piece Murphy’s Music Center Tribute Band takes the stage, audiences will hear the big band tunes their parents or grandparents danced to in the 1940s. Toes will tap as imaginations transport fans to the Argonne Ballroom in Chicago, swinging and swaying to “Satin Doll” or “Moonlight Serenade.” While Murphy’s Music Center Tribute Band has roots in the past, the band has plans for the future. Bob Wills, the band’s director, played with the original Johnny Murphy Orchestra. The “Tribute” part of the name is to pay homage to Johnny Murphy’s Orchestra, big band music, and to preserve their music. Wills wants to train young musicians to read and play the old-style big band music for which the Murphy’s were known.
All concerts are scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. on the first block of East Main Street. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the Town Hall Auditorium.
Special thanks and appreciation to Boy Scout Troops #372 and #375 for their assistance.
