Big Band dinner and dance scheduled in Aitkin

AITKIN - Bradyโ€™s Big Band from Minneapolis is coming back to perform March 1 for a performance at the 40 Club Convention Center in Aitkin.

Friends of the Arts is sponsoring the concert.

The Big Band is a 16-member musical ensemble that succeeds in capturing the elegance of the big band era of Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. Now called the BBB Jazz Orchestra, their performance has expanded to become a musical mosaic of the top standards from the 30โ€™s through the 80โ€™s.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Convention Center with a catered dinner, to be served by members of the Aitkin High School Concert Choir. This will be followed by two hours of live music and dancing. Tickets for the big event are now available at the Aitkin Independent Age or from Friends of the Arts board members. Individual tickets are priced at $37.50.
