The First Street Community Center in Mount Vernon, Iowa is pleased to announce that we will once again be hosting the Eddie Piccard Jazz Quartet. Performing with them again will be the Busch Brothers. The show will be April 29th from 7pm-9pm in the Uptown Theatre.
The performance is going to focus on the sounds of Dixieland jazz and is entitled “The Music of New Orleans & All That Jazz.”
Eddie Piccard Jazz plays hot traditional favorites and cool Shearing melodies, as well as warm Latin tunes. Eddie will be on piano and vocals, Craig Dove on bass, Jon Wilson on drums, Rich Martin on vibes, and Dave Richter on guitar.
For the Dixieland part of the program they will be joined by the Busch Boys–Marty on trombone, Larry on trumpet, and Luke on clarinet.
The “Busch Boys” are very happy to join the Eddie Piccard Quintet for this evening of music. Larry Busch is a veteran of the Guy Lombardo, Wayne King, and the Al Pierson Orchestras. He has been leading his own big band for many years and is currently the leader of the Dixieland Allstars. Trombonist Marty has toured with Al Cobine, Johnny Mathis, Dick Jurgens, The American Vintage Orchestra, and the Larry Busch Big Band. Luke has played with the Dixieland Allstars, the Mad City Funk, and his own SKA band.
“We really like playing for the audience at the Community Center,” Eddie said. “And this group will have a swinging, toe-tapping sound that people will really enjoy.”
NOTE: Patrons are welcome to bring a favorite beverage and purchase a Community Center cup or bring a clean Community Center cup from home to use in the Theatre space.
