Gordon Goodwin with the UL Lafayette Jazz Ensemble

I know. Shameless plug. But hey - I'm 3rd trombone in the big band, it's my school, it's my blog, and trombone players have very little shame.

The concert is Saturday, March 2 at 7:30pm in Angelle Hall auditorium. That's University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus (in, ah, Lafayette, LA) for anybody in the vicinity.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students, free to ULL people with your cajun card. Info for group tickets is on the poster (ie, phone number to call).

For anybody who doesn't know, Gordon Goodwin leads the Big Phat Band. He's a composer and arranger. He plays saxes and piano very very very well. We'll be having an open rehearsal with Goodwin working the UL Big Band on March 1, 7:00-9:30pm. It'll also be in Angelle's auditorium - anybody's welcome to come. The same goes for 9:30am on March 2 - he'll be doing clinics with area high school jazz ensembles. These rehearsals are also open to the public.

If you're a big band/jazz/music supporting person and in the general vicinity, come on out to hear us. It'd be greatly appreciated.

This is the poster. It's got all the same info on it, but prettier.

This is Count Bubba, one of the tunes we're doing. Listen. Enjoy. Go to the concert. :)

It was a great concert. Goodwin was a great person to work with. Great job to the high school groups that had clinics that day with him as well. Thank you to everybody who came out and listened, you make it possible for us to keep having concerts like this.

Now for some pictures from the performance itself. My dad took a ton of pictures. I like pictures.
