On Sunday, July 14, Barry Fagin And Friends will be playing lots of dance music: Cole Porter, Jobim, Richard Rogers, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and many other greats from the American jazz songbook. We’ll also play a few tunes that are a little more challenging and seldom performed, tunes for serious jazz fans. My goal at every gig is for everyone to hear at least one tune they’ve never heard before, and to play it well enough to make them go out and buy the recording. So don’t be surprised to hear a Colorado Springs premiere or two. Come ready to swing!
The event will be held at the Olympian Plaza Reception & Events Center, 975 S. Union Blvd. in Colorado Springs, from 1 to 4 p.m. Tickets are $10 general public, $5 society members and are available at the door; reservations are not necessary. There will also be dancing, door prizes, a cash bar plus a full buffet and dessert bar available for purchase.
