John Brown’s “Little” Big Band

June 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

(Tickets issued for the original concert date, Friday, January 21, 2022, will be honored on June 3, 2022)

John Brown (bassist) and his “Little” Big Band will bring the sound of the 1940s swing band music to life in this evening show of instruments and BIG dramatic notes! The “little” comes from the number of people they have displayed on stage. Despite their 11-member size, this group packs a big band punch and is in high demand for feature performances at concert halls, educational residencies, concerts, and private events across North Carolina and beyond.

Brown, a bassist since he was 13, has several accomplishments including performing with the North Carolina Symphony and well-known artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Elvin Jones, Nnenna Freelon, Mark Whitefield, and others across the United States and abroad.
