Explosion Big Band
February 21, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Led by chief detonators Doug Haining, sax, and Scott Agster, trombone, the EXPLOSION big band draws from the area’s finest musicians. The EXPLOSION is ready to detonate with the classic sounds of Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and more modern sounds of Thad Jones, Clare Fischer, Pat Metheny and others. The EXPLOSION ignites big band chestnuts, blasts into rock, erupts into swing, and will provide the BIG BANG at any concert or event. A big band of explosive magnitude, the EXPLOSION will get your feet tapping, your hands clapping and get you ready for lift off!
The EXPLOSION personnel includes:
Saxophones: Doug Haining, Chris Harris, Russ Peterson, Greg Keel & Gus Sandberg
Trumpets: Steve Wright, Adam Rossmiller, Geoff Senn, & Jeff Jensen
Trombones: Scott Agster, Pete Enblom, Dave Graf, & Wade Clark
