Barrie Concert Band presents 'Swing Fever!'

Swing Fever! was presented by the 55-piece Barrie Concert Band on May 4th at the Hi-way Pentecostal Church in Barrie. The audience was treated to master of ceremonies George Jonescu, host of the Zoomer Radio AM 740 Sunday Night Big Band Show, who provided amusing and insightful anecdotes of the big band era throughout the evening. The concert program included exciting tributes to band leaders Louis Armstrong, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, and Glenn Miller, and popular arrangers and composers in fields such as jazz-pop, bebop, Dixie, and Cuban jazz. The band wishes to thank their audience and supporters as well as the City of Barrie, Paul Sadlon Motors, Fox's Bakery, Music Pro, Simply Tea & Chocolate, The MacLaren Art Centre, and Japan Camera! The band will be holding a free outdoor concert 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, at the Rotary Aqua Theatre in Couchiching Beach Park, Orillia. For more upcoming events please visit
