2016-04-17: Blue Moon Orchestra in concert


Blue_Moon_Orchestra

 

We were in the mood for a swing concert. Luckily, we still got tickets for the Blue Moon Orchestra‘s programme The Story of the Big Bands.

Sixteen musicians, three singers as well as Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy doubles led the audience through the history of the big bands – from womb to tomb. We learned a lot about the history of the big bands, spending nearly three hours at the Karl-Diehl-Halle in Roethenbach – time well spent.

It is nice to listen to a CD, sure; it is far better to attend a live event.  🙂

5 saxophones, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, for the rhythm a contrabass, drums and piano, three singers

    • It was a great experience, Annika. These live events are wonderful. The band leader and the singer have a moderate Franconian accent, therefore it was quite easy to follow… 🙂
