Brockport Big Band playing for food

By on December 4, 2017




The band will be playing a wonder Christmas concert at the Greece Baptist Church near Long Pond and Ridge Road on December 10  at 7 p.m.  Free admission but everyone is asked to bring canned and boxed food to donate to the food shelf in Greece.  The BBB is hoping everyone from Brockport, Spencerport  and Greece will come out and support this swinging evening of great Christmas jazz. The band will be playing all your favorite Christmas tunes.  The Brockport Big Band was founded 14 years ago by Lorie Bryant, one of the trumpet players in the band.  Directed by Walt Perkins, the musicians donate their time and talents because of a love of playing big band music. Over the years the band has played many Christmas concerts and outdoor summer concerts in Brockport and the Rochester area. They also play annually at the Brockport High School Evening of Jazz and the Rochester International Jazz Festival, which has become a highlight event of their concert season. The band performs contemporary arrangements of popular songs as well as original big band era music and jazz classics.
