Over the years many big bands have played at Jazz Central and back in the day they even had their own band. It’s my understanding their band was mostly made up of Air Force players and they always had a grate time playing the music they loved. Coming up on Thursday, January 17 that very same music is returning to Jazz Central. This is because club owner Charles Stone had saved the original charts and Mike Rinderle had the idea of getting a band together to fill in the spot of the vacationing Generations Big Band. Well Mike has assembled some of the very best players in our area:
Steve Shininger – drums
John Slate – keyboard
Leo Smith – bass
John Harner – trumpet
Wade Baker – trumpet
Tom Shirley – trumpet
Mike Rinderle – trumpet
Ronald Hartwell – alto saxophone
Luis Rosa – alto saxophone
Grant Koeller – tenor saxophone
Carlos Serrano – tenor saxophone
Bill Burns – baritone saxophone
Linda Landis – trombone
Dustin Malone – trombone
Jon Hoff – trombone
Their performance promises to be something very special, which you can check out at: http://www.jazzcentraldayton.
