Music Monday: Rod Pierson Big Band Featuring Craig Boche
- 7:30 p.m. -
- All Ages
The Rod Pierson Big Band featuring Craig Boche offers the sound of today’s big bands, the biggest entertainers from the popular “Rat Pack” period, and classic instrumental big band hits. Nearly all of the band members of this eastern Iowa-based band are jazz educators and clinicians, and many are alumni of the orchestras of Glenn Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, as well as Woody Herman and Guy Lombardo. Rod Pierson’s credits include long-term stints with the Miller, Dorsey, and Guy Lombardo bands; backing artists such as Aretha Franklin, Burt Bacharach, and The Temptations; and touring with nearly 20 Broadway shows. Singer Craig Boche’s voice has been compared to Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Bobby Darin.
