Young Sounds of Arizona
The Young Sounds Big Bands and Combo have a very busy spring season ahead. On March 1st Crescent Ballroom will feature the 5 O’Clock band for the opening slot of a large swing event alongside Kevin Tangney’s New Guard Big Band. Crescent Ballroom tickets cost $15 with the show beginning at 7:30. Discount Tire’s annual free family weekend returns to the Phoenix Art Museum Sunday March 10th and will feature all three groups starting at noon. For the month of April, Young Sounds has been accepted to perform for the ASU Highland Jazz Festival on Saturday April 6th. Monday April 8th will be their special annual concert at the ASU Kerr Cultural Center featuring the legendary Dennis Rowland. Young Sounds close out the season with a show at the Musician’s Union Hall Tuesday May 14th and a final concert at the MCC Performing Arts Center on Tuesday June 4th. Directors Andy Gross and Kevin Tangney have been a force in getting these kids swingin’, we highly recommend you hear these ensembles wail as soon as possible.
