Big Band Echoes at the Library @ Cottonwood Public Library
Aug 17 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

            Big Band Echoes, a nostalgic look back to the Big Band Era of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s, will be meeting at the Cottonwood Public Library on Friday, August 17 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and continues on the third Friday of each month. Hosted by Jim Ahlstrom, a former radio personality now living in Cottonwood, the program will feature music from the Big Band Era along with a special emphasis each month on a featured big band leader, a short bio and a sampling of their best known hits. Noted big band singers will also be featured.

            Ahlstrom says he’ll conduct some trivia elements involving big band themes, song titles, and lyrics to challenge the audience. The audience will also be introduced to foreign big bands, one or two novelty songs and portions of big band radio remotes recorded during that era. Current artists of the big band genre will also be presented. “I’m hoping that the attendees will not only enjoy listening to some long forgotten tunes but will also enjoy participating in the trivia portion of the evening,” Ahlstrom added.

            This month Ahlstrom will be featuring Ray Anthony as the featured band of the month, and the featured vocalist of the month is Keely Smith. Other bands to be featured will be Tony Corbiscello, Ralph Flanagan, Phil Harris, Les Brown, Kay Kyser, Vaughn Monroe, Jimmy Dorsey, Sammy Kaye, and Glenn Miller. Among Big Band Era vocalists to be heard include Kate Smith, Doris Day, Johnny Mercer, The Andrews Sisters, Kitty Kallen and Buddy Clark.
