The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra with special guest Paula Cole
July 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm$49 – $200
On Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 7 p.m., Basie is Back! at the Lobero Theatre! That’s the Count Basie Orchestra! We all remember Basie’s playlist with songs such as “April in Paris,” “Imagination,” “Autumn Leaves,” and “Oh, Lady Be Good” which evoke romance and elegance. Basie’s revered orchestra has won 18 Grammy Awards and has been serenading fans for generations. In 2015, the orchestra released their crictically acclaimed “A Very Swingin’ Basie Christmas!” which topped the Jazz charts and sold out on Amazon!
Paula Cole, the woman who has been celebrated by Peter Gabriel as “an original voice both in what she is saying and how she is saying it!” will star as a special guest. Last month, Cole celebrated her 20th anniversary as a Jazz artist with the release of her sixth solo alum, Raven, and has also won various Grammy Awards.
All proceeds from this once-in-a-lifetime evening will go directly to The Rona Barrett Foundation’s Harry’s House – A Home for Alzheimer’s and Assisted Living at The Golden Inn & Village which is slated to open in 2018.
