A Tribute to Benny Goodman: The Julian Bliss Septet
Feb 25 , 2018 • Batte Center
One of Britain’s finest clarinetists, Julian Bliss brings the legendary King of Swing’s music to life in this delightful evening of songs and stories. Goodman was a colossus of the Swing Era igniting enthusiasm in ballrooms and over airwaves with his unmatched flair and genius on the clarinet. Bliss and his band stay true to his music but add a modern twist as they perform the music of Hoagy Carmichael, Louis Prima, Euby Blake, George and Ira Gershwin and more!
"Bliss is capable of swinging mightily and adapting his formidable technique to the task at hand." –Jazz Times
Presented in McGee Theatre at Wingate University.
