The Evolution Big Band is enjoying its active 2022 schedule of performing for enthusiastic and appreciative audiences. The band is currently preparing for multiple performances beginning in January. Here are the concert dates we have confirmed thus far for 2023:
January 22nd – Lowcountry Presbyterian Church (2 p.m.)
February 5th -- Dance Boosters of Bluffton Gala @ Sequins Ballroom (2 p.m.)
February 23rd -- Second Helpings @ Providence Presbyterian Church (Time TBD)
March 2nd -- Sun City Lions Club @ Magnolia Hall (7 p.m.)
These concerts will feature popular big band arrangements from Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Sammy Nestico Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Gordon Goodwin, Bob Alberti and many more. Plus, we will showcase modern arrangements of jazz standards.
Dates for concerts in April, May and June will be announced in early 2023.
Your generosity helps us support numerous non-profit organizations in the area. Consistent with our mission to support local charitable causes by performing contemporary arrangements of big band music at concerts and private events, the band has raised more than $250,000 for non-profit organizations in the area.
Below is a sample of one of our recent performances this season. Other clips can be found on the Gallery tab on this website. If your organization is interested in booking the Evolution Big Band to help your fundraising and outreach efforts, please contact Executive Director Jeff Shawd (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The band is taking some well-deserved time off until August, when we will restart our weekly rehearsals to prepare for our Fall performance schedule. The band is currently booking events, and we will post new concert dates as they are confirmed.
