Big Band Romance
May 17, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An 18 piece big band comes together with Linda to celebrate some of the extraordinary women who defined that classic sound conjuring the thrilling, legendary big band era of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and more. Doors open at 7pm.
“Great pipes, a swinging sense of time and tempo, musical as hell, hypnotic on ballads and powerful as a big-band vocalist on the rhythmic numbers, Linda Purl is a perfect fit for DIVA. It doesn’t hurt that’s she’s also as gorgeous to look at as a Technicolor dream from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Linda Purl has got it all in one meteoric display of supersonic talent. She fractures me!” – Rex Reed
“If there were still big band cutting sessions, DIVA would swing a lot of the remaining big bands out of the place.” – Nat Hentoff, Jazz Times
