December 4th (Friday), 2015 VJC Big Band Pays Tribute to Terry Gibbs' Dream Band

Rob Freeberg, Director
Richard Greenblatt, Guest Vibraphonist
Jill Connolly, Guest Vocalist, Mark Anagostopulos, Guest Vocalist

Put on your dancing shoes for this annual celebration to raise money for the VJC's scholarship fund: high-energy swing with challenging arrangements from one of the best big bands ever to feature vibraphone. If you haven't heard of Terry Gibbs' Dream Band, you're in for a treat. In 1959 the Dream Band, was named "Best Band in the World" in the Down Beat Critics' Poll. The VJC Big Band under the baton of Musical Director Rob Freeberg will perform the original Dream Band scores, beautifully arranged versions of familiar standards set for big band plus vibraphone. Invited musical guest soloist Rich Greenblatt, jumped at the opportunity to revisit this influential repertoire. Special guest vocal soloist will be Jill Connolly. All proceeds from this concert will go directly into the VJC scholarship program to assure that access to jazz education is available to all.
