Concert: SOLD OUT! Compaq Big Band
Brought to you by: Fugitive Productions
We’re sorry to tell you that his event has sold out. The good news — we’re working on scheduling another date soon. Stay tuned. We hope to post something VERY soon.
A very special holiday performance, featuring the 19-piece Compaq Big Band, coming back to the “heart of their start” in their Sanctuary debut. Formed at Digital Equipment Corporation’s Mill complex just down the street in Maynard, the DECbigband eventually evolved into the Compaq Big Band. In the last two decades, they’ve risen to prominence throughout New England as one of the most accomplished full-size big bands in the area, featuring a cookin’ rhythm section and 14 horns that achieve an ultra-tight sound, with terrific instrumental soloists. While they’re faithful to traditional Swing Era classics, they also dig their chops into challenging swing and jazz arrangements.
Featuring the ultra-talented Marina Evans out front — channelin’ Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall, Linda Eder, Mariah Carey, and more — and special guest vocalist Ed Scheer of Boston’s “The Love Dogs,” a Sanctuary favorite!
