Those Were the Days

February 8, 2014  

Taking an extended journey back in time to the Big Band era and the golden days of the Great American Songbook, the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches presents "Those Were The Days," an evening featuring acclaimed guest artist Dr. Bill Prince, at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on Saturday, February 8t at 7:30 p.m. Dr. Prince captivates audiences with his extraordinary skill as a composer/arranger, his multi-instrument virtuosity, and a personable style that instantly transforms the concert hall into a virtual college course on musical history and memories. He has performed with a number of well-known big bands including Xavier Cugat, Ray Anthony, Tex Beneke, Les and Larry Elgart, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, and Louis Bellson, as well as the Denver, Ft. Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and Jacksonville Symphonies.

   For Those Were The Days, Prince has either composed or arranged virtually the entire playlist for the Symphonic Band, which includes extended tributes to Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Harry James, familiar memories from Benny Goodman and Count Basie, and a few Latin favorites.
