THE BUDDY K BIG BAND Friday Feb 8th 2019 at 8pm

Tickets: $15

The Buddy-K Band begins in 1983 when Bill Shipp of Hendersonville, NC, realized that there were many talented musicians in the Hendersonville area that love the big band sound. Bill organized the Buddy-K Band and under his leadership the band has performed throughout the Southeast.

If you love classic Big Band / Swing Era music you're gonna LOVE The Buddy K Big Band. They feature favotires by Les Brown, Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Woodie Herman, Tommy Dorsey and Henry Mancini and other popular bands of the 1930's and 40s.

The dance floor will be available!

Buddy K's bag is mostly ‘40s swing, with a couple waltzes and Latin tunes, and a few modern twists. "We're keeping the music alive," the director says. "We've got five or six Count Basie arrangements by Sammy Nestico, and a few of the old standards, ‘Jumpin' At The Woodside,' and ‘In The Mood.'......We do ‘My Favorite Things.' We do ‘Route 66,' we do some Bobby Darin — ‘Beyond The Sea' and ‘Mack The Knife.' But most of the stuff we do traces back to the ‘30s and ‘40s. We do a version of ‘I'm Getting Sentimental Over You,' " Kraus says. "Tommy Dorsey was quite a player!"-- trombonist Ken Kraus
