Inspiration Weekend 2014 - SOLD OUT

This coming weekend we'll be providing all the music for Inspiration Weekend 2014 - THREE nights, three DIFFERENT bands. The IW Website only lists who's playing on the schedule, but doesn't really tell you anything about the bands, so here's a proper listing.

FRIDAY NIGHT - The Grand Slam Sextet

For only our second gig ever, the Grand Slam Sextet, featuring clarinetist Russ Reinberg, and vibraphonist Craig Fundyga, and led by Jonathan Stout, as been added to the IW2014 line up by popular demand. An all-instrumental evening, the Grand Slam Sextet will be featuring the classic combination of vibraphone, clarinet and electric guitar made famous by the Benny Goodman Sextet, featuring Lionel Hampton and Charlie Christian. 

SATURDAY NIGHT - Jonathan Stout and his Campus Five, feat. Hilary Alexander

The Campus Five again returns to IW (for the 4th? 5th? time). If the photo above from last year's IW is any indication, it should be a blast again. We've got the whole gang coming, Albert Alva, Jim Ziegler, Chris Dawson, Wally Hersom, and Josh Collazo, and of course our featured vocalist and co-leader, Hilary Alexander. We're always adding new tunes the book, so we'll have a mix of those, and some well-honed Campus Five classics. 

SUNDAY NIGHT - Jonathan Stout and his Rhythm Busters, feat. Hilary Alexander

The Rhythm Busters also return to IW (for the 3rd year). The Rhythm Busters is our 11-piece "mini-" Big Band, and it has specifically 1920's-1930's flavor (as opposed to any of our other bands, which are 1930's-1940's focused). We'll be playing vintage orchestrations from the books of Chick Webb, Fletcher Henderson, Jimmie Lunceford, Benny Goodman, and even some original arrangements from our own Dan Barrett.
