Bill Simenson Orchestra
October 1 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 8:00am on day First of the month, happening 12 times
Original big band music – every first Tuesday!
“Seventeen members strong, the Bill Simenson Orchestra is the best local big band you’ve likely never heard. The first Tuesday of each month, it plays a cozy under-the-radar venue with sofas, comfy chairs and great sound — Jazz Central. The band is full of local bar stars (Pete Whitman, Chris Lomheim, et al.), but it’s trumpeter Simenson’s terrific chart-writing that impresses the most. If you enjoy large jazz ensembles, from pioneers Ellington and Basie up to such present-day lights as Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue, you’ll find much to like. (8-10:30 p.m. Tue., Jazz Central, 407 Central Av. SE., Mpls. $10 suggested donation.
