WHEN SWING WAS KING - A TRIBUTE TO BENNY GOODMAN Benny Goodman was known as the King of Swing - his iconic Big Band recordings of the 1930's & 40's are instantly recognizable and still popular today. In this concert Paul Cosentino and the Boilermaker Jazz Band will bring the energy and delicate swing of the Goodman small bands to you, performing some of their best known material. You'll also hear some of your favorite Goodman Big Band melodies, done small band style. Benny Goodman was also fortunate enough to work with some of the finest female vocalists of the era including Peggy Lee, Martha Tilton, Ella Fitzgerald, and the Helens- Ward and Forrest. These ladies always brought a touch of class and grace to the proceedings along with the requisite swing factor! Jennifer McNulty brings you selections by Benny's Girls. Get in touch with The Boilermaker Jazz Band and let us bring a touch of classic jazz and swing to your event!

EventReviewed on February 9, 2013From Wheeling, WV

The band was great. Very professional and a good sound. They definitely played to the crowds vibe. We had a mixture of dancers, table conversation and mingling and the selections, volume and tone was very condusive to it all.
