The Lighthouse Big Band, a 20+ year mainstay in the music scene, is now also honored to be a resident ensemble at Thelma.
A WAMI nominee for Best Big Band, the band plays a variety of genres in the big band style. The Lighthouse Big Band performs music including traditional big bands/dance bands of the 30s and 40s, the music of Count Basie and Duke Ellington, Latin Jazz, contemporary big bands like Gordon Goodwins Big Phat Band, as well as big band versions of rock/fusion music.
The LBB has long been the house band for the Fond du Lac Jazz Festival and has appeared in concert and dance venues throughout the state backing such jazz stalwarts as Tom Bones Malone, David Fathead Newman, Kevin Mahogany, Eugene Rousseau, Tony Scodwell, Scott Whitfield and Ginger Bergman, Janet Planet, and the acclaimed jazz trumpeter Valery Ponomarev.
The Lighthouse Big Band is honored to be a part of the area arts community, presenting listening opportunities, promoting learning opportunities, and preserving this great art form, says Brad Curran of Curran Music Studios and leader of the Lighthouse Big Band.
