Ladd McIntosh Big Band

September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Ladd McIntosh Big Band
The Ladd McIntosh Big Band and Ladd McIntosh Swing Orchestra have been gracing arena’s, concert halls, and auditoriums for close to forty years.
Ladd’s numerous awards will ensure his status as a preeminent composer, arranger, and director in the genre of the Large Ensemble Jazz Orchestras.
Ladd’s concept of music is transcendent. He has been influenced by the music of Duke Ellington, Gil Evans, Stan Kenton, Count Basie, and Gerald Wilson. Ladd has been recognized and hailed by Sammy Nestico, Stan Kenton, and Hans Zimmer as a musical genius.
Classical influences include Bela Bartok and Igor Stravinsky.
Swing, Latin, Funk, Blues, and Jazz are staples in his library.
A distinguished career as an orchestrator on many major motion pictures ensures even the younger generation has sampled his prodigious talents as a musician, even if unwittingly.
Let’s ensure they experience it live!
His musicians, some of the most sought after players on the west coast, work as jazz educators and are first call studio players.
Don’t miss: The McIntosh Experience!
If you love music and jazz in particular this is a show you will not want to miss. Music for your heart, mind, and soul no matter your age.
Take Home A Compact Disc! Better yet have Ladd personally sign it for you!
