In the tradition of the Big Band battles from the ’30s and ’40s, the two bands join forces on one stage in a back and forth duel that features jazz, swing, and favorite standards from the glory years. In past Battles, the clear winner was the audience! No Big Band or jazz lover should miss this rematch!
