As we enter into the holiday season, the Lighthouse Big Band would like to begin the celebrations with a Big Band Dance Party. The band will be performing songs of the “Big Band Era,” featuring music from Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Les Brown, and many other favorite dance bands from that era. The band will be joined by guest vocalist Paul Rosenfeld, who will be singing favorites from the Frank Sinatra library.

Come out with your dance partners and help us kick off Thanksgiving week with a rousing Big Band Dance Party!

“The Lighthouse Big Band is one of Fond du Lac’s best-kept secrets,” Brad Curran of Curran Music Studios and leader of the Lighthouse Big Band says.

A WAMI nominee for Best Big Band, the band plays a variety of genres in the big band style. The LBB has long been the house band for the Fond du Lac Jazz Festival, and has appeared in concert and dance venues throughout the state over the past 18+ years backing such jazz stalwarts as Tom “Bones” Malone, David “Fathead” Newman, Kevin Mahogany, Eugene Rousseau, Tony Scodwell, Scott Whitfield and Ginger Bergman, Janet Planet, and the acclaimed jazz trumpeter Valery Ponomarev. The Lighthouse Big Band performs music including traditional big bands/dance bands of the 30’s and 40’s, the music of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, Latin Jazz, and the more modern big bands like Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, as well as big band versions of rock/fusion music.
