The Golden Age of Big Band Ve­gas wil be cel­e­brated at the Draiocht Arts Cen­tre on Fri­day at 8pm. Las Ve­gas, due to its very na­ture, has been a melt­ing pot for mu­si­cians and acts from the early 1940’s to the present day. Leg­endary acts such as The Rat Pack, Louis Prima, Elvis Pres­ley, Lib­er­ace and much more have all been a huge part of the city’s his­tory. The Ul­ti­mate Big Band Show are bring­ing that his­tory back to life with this ex­plo­sive new show. From the lonely corner Jazz club to the hey­day of the leg­endary Sands Ho­tel Ball­room to to­day’s MGM Grand Arena, this scene was and is one of the most ex­cit­ing mu­sic scenes ever to ex­ist. Di­rected by Sax­o­phon­ist Daire O’reilly, The Ul­ti­mate Big Band Show presents a night of en­ter­tain­ment that trans­ports you back to these glory days of Ve­gas. This elec­tric 20 piece jazz orches­tra has gone from strength to strength bring­ing amaz­ing mu­sic and great fun to every stage they play. Boast­ing some Jazz le­gends such as Pat Glynn, Gene Ban­non, Dag Car­roll, Bobby Lynch, Daire O’reilly and Paul Cox this act never dis­ap­points ... Re­mem­ber, only le­gends sur­vive Ve­gas!
