Festival Big Band, featuring Kim Nalley, Kenny Washington 2018

Saturday, July 14, 7:30 PM PDT

| $15 – $55

Kim Nalley

Kenny Washington

The red-hot Festival Big Band plays the perennially sold-out concert, this year with two vocalists to add to the high energy.  Last year’s Big Band vocalist Kim Nalley returns again this year to set the woods, and the house, on fire.  According to Down Beat, “Sultry voiced Nalley brings an irresistibly sexy sense of swing, rhythmic dexterity and beautiful sound to the classics, with her crisp diction and playful delivery of earthy lines.”  New Orleans native Kenny Washington has a childhood background in gospel, but is at home with the blues as well as jazz.  He can scat with the harmonic daring and rhythmic command of a bebop saxophonist, croon with the simmering soul of Donny Hathaway, and interpret standards with intelligence and emotional commitment.

The Festival Big Band:

Saxophones: Jim Dukey, Jimmy Kraft, Greg D’Augelli, Frances Vaneck; Barbara D’Augelli
Trumpets: Doug Morton, Jim Rodseth, John Capobianco, Josh Reed
Trombones: Don Benham, Tonya Akley, Jeanne Geiger, Matt Hall
Bass: Jerry Watts, Jr.
Drums: Ralph Humphrey
Guitar: Terry Simcik
Piano: Julian Pollack

For 2021, the Festival is temporarily transplanted to a new indoor venue, the beautiful 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. One-hour concerts, no intermission, distanced, limited capacity, proof of vaccination required, masks required. Sell-outs are expected due to limited capacity.

Seats arranged in pairs must be purchased in pairs. Orders containing one of a pair of seats may be cancelled.

For the safety of our patrons, it is the Festival’s choice to maintain distanced seating. Allowing paired seats to be purchased individually would disrupt this aspect of our safety plan, which, for many patrons, is the basis of their decision to attend in 2021.
