Lighthouse Big Band
“Love is in the Air”
When it comes to holidays, playing music is always a good way to commemorate the special occasion, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. They’re the songs that touched our hearts, and filled us all with the feelings of love and romance. Whether you’re celebrating solo, hosting a sweet fête with friends and family or having a candlelit dinner with your significant other, songs about affection can be a nice backdrop to the love-filled day.
The Lighthouse Big Band’s set for this evening will be filled with songs about love. Come join the band in the Fountain City Jazz and Dance club as we deliver our Valentine’s Day gift to you in our own unique musical fashion.
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.
“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.
