GO Jazz Big Band Presents: Basie, the Beatles & Beyond @ West Ranch High School Performing Arts Theater
Apr 23 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

When local educator Brian Leff took over the GO Jazz Big Band, he gave it a unique, three-part identifier. For their spring concert this year, the band takes its slogan literally as the GO Jazz Big Band presents: Basie, the Beatles, & Beyond.

On April 23rd the band invites you to swing hard through Basie favorites like Blues in Hoss’ Flat and Fancy Pants, revel in the great melodies of Beatles hits like Norwegian Wood and Can’t Buy Me Love, and explore the mysterious outer limits of Beyond. But just what is Beyond? According to Leff, it ranges from Bobby Darin to Bjork, with side trips to wild Celtic dance and a severe phobia of rotary telephones.

GO Jazz Big Band presents: Basie, the Beatles, & Beyond at the West Ranch High School Performing Arts Theater on Sunday, April 23rd, starting at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are an exceptional value at $10 for general admission and $5 for seniors. But the really great news is that students of all ages are free!

The GO Jazz Big Band is a Santa Clarita Valley treasure featuring some of the best musicians in Southern California. This is a hard-charging ensemble in the tradition of the Buddy Rich Band and the Tonight Show Orchestra that also keeps an eye toward the exciting future of Big Band music. Terrific soloists, a great rhythm section, blazing horns, and vocalist Steve Lively all combine to make this a truly special event.

What is Denim Day?
The Denim Day campaign began in 1998, triggered by an Italian court’s decision to overturn a rape conviction, citing that since the victim wore tight jeans, she must have helped her rapist remove them, which implied consent. In response, the women of the Italian Parliament came to work the following day wearing denim in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence created the Denim Day campaign soon after, asking people to wear jeans in an effort to visibly boost rape prevention awareness and to dismantle destructive attitudes on sexual assault. See more on how you can get involved on the Denim Day website!
