This Sunday, December 12, from 3 to 6 pm it’s time to take a little break from the holiday madness and kick back a bit and enjoy the sound of the PBS Little Big Band. This time the line up consists of the two name sake founders, Phil and Bob Scellato on their thrilling trumpets, and then two of our top sax players Scott Villiger and Reggie Padilla rounding out the front line.
At the Boston key board we have Ikaika Tecson a popular jazz man with fresh ideas and a great sense of humor.
Taking care of the rhythm section are two stalwarts of the local jazz scene, Phil Bennett on drums and Terry Grace on upright bass.
We have enjoyed all these musicians here before and for the newcomers you can look forward to hearing some of Hawaii’s top jazz and as far as we know the only big band sound around. So come and enjoy.
We open at 1 pm for those who would like to have their own table and have a relaxing time with their own food and drink. We always provide punch and coffee, and if one of us is in the mood we sometimes make cookies too.
