Returning to the Madison Theatre for the second consecutive season, Long Island’s own authentic swing band celebrates Valentine’s weekend with A SWINGTIME BIG BAND VALENTINE, featuring classic love songs from the Swing Era and the Great American Songbook. Led by Artistic Director Steve Shaiman, this 20-piece jazz ensemble re-creates the sound of the Big Band Era, featuring hits from the libraries of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Les Brown and Duke Ellington. Featured vocalists Bobbie Ruth and Jerry Costanzo pay tribute to the greatest singers of American Popular Songs, ranging from current stars like Jane Monheit and Michael Bublé to legends such as Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughn, Nat ‘King’ Cole and Frank Sinatra.
