A Holiday Spectacular
December 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm
Introducing our 2018 Holiday Spectacular, featuring special guests Harry and Ken, The Watters Brothers and the WMU jazz faculty rhythm section.
The concert will feature the band and the Watters Brothers playing seasonal classics you all know by heart but with a New Orleans jazz flair. The Band always looks forward to playing for the holidays and is especially excited to be playing for you this year with the Watters Brothers. Harry is a renowned and in-demand trombonist and Ken is well known and a respected trumpeter. The brothers get along well enough to have recorded several albums together and will bring their brotherly brass magic to our 2018 show.
You probably have already heard Ken and Harry Watters because they have played on songs you for sure have heard from the worlds of pop, jazz, and band. Harry Watters is a sought after trombonist who has performed with Doc Severinsen, Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, Erich Kunzel, Kevin Mahogany, Wycliffe Gordon, Lou Rawls, Maureen McGovern, Bill Watrous, and the Boston Brass. Ken Watters is an American jazz trumpeter and member of several noted performing groups, including Tabou Combo, Natalie Cole Band, the Magic City Jazz Orchestra, Ray Reach and Friends and the W. C. Handy Jazz All-Stars.
Kalamazoo Concert Band is excited to be playing this concert for you, and we welcome you to the excitement and the musical experience of this holiday spectacular.
