Lighthouse Big Band
Of all the artistic tools at a filmmaker’s disposal, it can be argued that music is among the most vital — and certainly one of the most powerful. Music triggers memories of events, the people we were with at the time, and the feelings we had in those days gone by. The Lighthouse Big Band is hoping to bring back memories for you with an evening of T.V. and Movie themes, ranging from The Pink Panther, Perry Mason, the Flintstones, and many more. Come join the band for an evening of fun and memories.
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.
