ONE NIGHT ONLY!!! MAY 10, 2014
Please check out our website: www.sheley.net I have started adding mp3's of the charts I have for sale. It's not perfect, but gives you a pretty good idea of what they sound like. The arrangements are inexpensive at just $12.50 for a 7-piece chart. Trp/Trombone/Tenor/Alto or Bari and 3 rhythm. I also take requests for different instrumentations.
It will take me some time to get them all posted. I have 1.5 pages up and running. Cheers!
Sunny & Cool. Come chill out to some great jazz tonight at Mary's Market with the Little Big Band. Cool Jazz for some Cool Fans! Bring a jacket and lawn chair. We will be playing some great new charts never before heard in public. Cheers!
Ready to play on Friday at Mary's Market! Looking forward to it! Songlist is set and the guys are ready. Looks like it will be a pleasant night in the low 70's. We'll open the performance with Marty Paich's arrangement of Love Me or Leave Me, written for the Dave Pell Octet. The chart features Ken Stein on Tenor. We will also play many selections from our CD "Blue Moon" including the title cut Blue Moon, Poinciana and Fred a latin chart composed by Neal Hefti. The concert is free, so bring all your friends! Cheers!
Reminder: The Little Big Band is appearing at Mary's Market at Edgebrook shopping center, Rockford IL. on Friday, Aug. 17th, 2012, 6:30-9:00 PM - Mary's Market has agreed to bring in the full 7-piece band. I hope you can make it. The concert is free and Mary's Market has a great menu for dinner! Great Food, Great Jazz and a Great time!
If you were planning to purchase a copy of our CD "Blue Moon", Now would be the best time. CD Baby is giving it's artists full fee for the next 5 days. The band would get 100% of the money paid. We encourage you to make your purchase soon! It's a great CD!
Please review the CD after your purchase.
Reminder: The Little Big Band Plays this Wed. 7/4 in Stockton IL. We play from 1 - 3 PM in the town park. I hope if you are around and not busy, you might come out and hear us play. Cheers! Cary
