This critically acclaimed show has been described as a memorable night of Frank Sinatra’s best and much more!
The Joe Gransden 16 Piece Big Band is quickly becoming one of the busiest groups on the jazz scene. Initially formed in 2009, Joe and the guys have continued building momentum and are performing numerous shows nationwide. Joe and his big band have a legion of fans, including Smokey Robinson, who shares that “Joe has an innate ability to connect with an audience. His singing and trumpet playing are world-class! Throw in his 16-piece big band, and you have something special!” Joe Gransden has performed worldwide and released 14 CDs under his name. Renowned first for the hard bop approach of his trumpet, Gransden’s singing voice has been compared to that of Chet Baker and Frank Sinatra. He performs regularly at the Blue Note in New York City and other major cities worldwide.
Opening for Joe’s band will be Sugar Hill’s own Broad St. Jazz Band which will perform an exciting range of jazz & swing selections.
