HOT SUMMER NIGHTS! FREE Outdoor Concert With TAMMY McCANN & THE SHARP RADWAY BIG BAND
Jul 16, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm| FREE
Out of Harlem’s Savoy Ballroom came that bold big band swing sound with legends Artie Shaw, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, and Count Basie. Come swing under the stars with one of today’s premier jazz stylists as she brings her one-of-a-kind voice to classic songs from the big band era such as “Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me” and “Embraceable You.” Tammy McCann toured as a ‘Raelette’ with the great Ray Charles, and has performed at such venues as Birdland, The Blue Note, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
All concerts take place at Kingsborough’s Lighthouse Bandshell, on the campus of Kingsborough Community College. Admission and parking is free and open to the public.
