The Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center in Poughkeepsie will be the venue for a swinging "Broadway's Best, Big Band Style" show presented by The Big Band Sound 20-piece jazz orchestra, along with our vocalists, dancers and emcee, and it will benefit the Sparrow's Nest local charity. Performances are Friday, July 13th at 8 p.m., Saturday, July 14th at 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 15th at 2 p.m. "Broadway's Best, Big Band Style" will feature The Big Band Sound 20-piece jazz orchestra and our six vocalists along with swing dance performers in a show spotlighting smash hits from Broadway. At the core of the Great American Songbook are timeless songs that originated on the Broadway stage or later made their way onto Broadway. In this show, songs will be performed from all of the greatest Broadway composers and lyricists, including Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, Oscar Hammerstein, George and Ira Gershwin, Fats Waller, and Jerome Kern.

Plus, classic standards will be presented ranging from Broadway's Golden Age, including "South Pacific", "My Fair Lady", and "West Side Story", to more modern shows, including "Chicago", "Cats" and "Beauty and the Beast". What better way to enjoy a journey through Broadway favorites than in the most exciting setting of a live 20-piece big band. Many of the selections to be presented in "Broadway's Best, Big Band Style" were popularized by big bands and big band singers, including Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife", Frank Sinatra's "Hello Dolly" with the Count Basie band, Ella Fitzgerald's "Pick Yourself Up", and Benny Goodman's "Sing, Sing, Sing", which has been featured in many Broadway dance shows. Also included will be the Andrew Sisters' showstopper "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and the rousing anthem "Lullaby of Broadway".

General Admission is $20. Proceeds from this show will benefit the Sparrow's Nest local charity. At last year's show, $3000 was raised for the charity.
