The Nova Contemporary Jazz Orchestra plays O’Gara’s tonight, and we hope everyone can make it. The beginning of Fall means a few changes in the Nova band. Tonight, we welcome Kari on alto saxophone, and bid a fond farewell to Sten Johnson, our previous 2nd alto player. This means we are down only one Sten Johnson, since we still have a Sten Johnson in the trumpet section.
On a related note, if your name is Sten Johnson and you play any sort of instrument, don’t forget to talk to us about getting on Nova’s sub list.
Where did the summer go? Nope, it hasn’t really been a long hot summer in Minnesota, but tonight, August 25, the Nova Band will do its best to heat things up. Join us at 8 o’clock at O’Gara’s for the a last summer fling. (Or last hurrah, or anything else you might like to call it.) The program will include some new charts we’ve been working on.
Is tonight, June 23. One night only, at least until next month. Cool down, cool off, and hear Nova play all the favorites tonight!
Once again, tonight at O’Gara’s. See everybody there!
Coming up this Tuesday, Nova once again brings its contemporary music wares to O’Garas Bar and Grill. Well, most of our music is contemporary. Recently, we’ve come into the possession of some classic jazz orchestra transcriptions as recorded by the Duke Ellington and Benny Carter bands. What are these tunes? We may just play them, so come out and hear us!
