Compaq Big Band
The 19-piece Compaq Big Band is honored to be featured in the Maple Street Church Artists Series in Danvers, Massachusetts. This public event is presented by Maple Street Congregational Church, UCC. Although admission is FREE, capacity is limited, so on-line registration is required to guarantee admittance. Unregistered walk-ins will be welcomed ONLY if space permits.
All seating is General admission. Doors open 7:00pm. The venue is the sanctuary of the church, which is located at 90 Maple Street in downtown Danvers.
The extremely talented Marina Evans from nearby Cape Ann will be the band's vocalist, out front channelin' Ella Fitzgerald, Diane Schuur, Tierney Sutton, Natalie Cole, and more. In addition, the band will perform some powerful swing and jazz instrumentals, too, from such notables as Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, Chris Walden, Tom Kubis, and others.
This concert is presented in memory of Larry Drouin, a beloved music educator in the Beverly, Massachusetts public schools for 36 years, as well as a talented musician and longtime, very active member of the Maple Street Church. Upon his passing three years ago, his wife Judy established a fund in his memory, and it was her wish that these monies be used for special events that would celebrate Larry's life-long dedication to music. Donation boxes for cash and checks will be available for contributions to sustain the fund to present future concerts.
This event is free and all seating is general admission, please reserve your ticket to attend via eventbrite: www.eventbrite.com/e/compaq-big-band-tickets-420441230037.
