Big Band Night: The Paul Keller Orchestra

Monday January 7, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

The Performance Network Theatre joins with the Ann Arbor District Library for a night of Big Band music featuring The Paul Keller Orchestra, one of Michigan's finest, oldest, most-respected and well-traveled jazz big bands.

This do-not-miss event is also a celebration of the world premiere of "Brill" - David Wells' comedy (with music) of a washed-up big band songwriter and the introduction of rock and roll that begins performances at the Performance Network on January 10 through February 10. Cast members and Performance Network staff will provide an introduction to this delightful new play at this concert . Additional information on 'Brill" may be found on the Performance Network website at performancenetwork.org.

The Paul Keller Orchestra has garnered great popular and critical acclaim winning, among other awards, the 2003 and 2007 Detroit Music Awards for Best Big Band. The Orchestra has recorded seven CDs, enjoyed two European tours, and performed at nearly every Michigan music festival. Their voluminous library of over 1,000 arrangements includes classic, obscure and original big band material from the entire history of jazz.

Enjoy an evening of music from the big band era and celebrate the opening of this world premiere play!
