GLENN MILLER, Benny Goodman and Count Basie enthusiasts are in for a treat early next month, when a night of music featuring their favourite Big Band numbers takes place under the stars at an open air concert in Alfas del Pi.
Think of tunes like ‘In the Mood’, ‘Moonlight Serenade’ and ‘Stardust’, then imagine a warm Summer night sitting outside in the moonlight with your friends, drinks in hand, maybe taking your partner onto the dance floor for spin around and you ‘ll get the picture.
On Monday June 5, the International musicians of the Rommy Baker Big Band will strike up the band at 20.30h on the concourse of the Casa de Culura in Alfas del Pi, with proceeds from ticket sales going to help charities and good causes in the town.
They will be joined by special guests for the evening, ‘Swingtet’, a lively quintet and a full outside bar service will be on hand for refreshing those parts the band can’t, run by the local fiesta group, the mayorales.
Facilities at the cafeteria of the Casa de Cultura will also be available, provided by Alfas del pi town hall who have fully backed the event, as have the local associations representing the many nationalities residing in the municipality.
Funds raise by the concert will go toward supporting the Alfaz year of health and will benefit the AECC-the Spanish National Cancer Charity, with a donation also going to the local Social Volunteers Association.
Organisers recommend buying tickets priced at 10 euros each,( incuding seat), in advance, as capacity is limited.
They are available from: Tiendas Cancer Research Alfas y Albir, Amas de Casa, Oficina de Turismo Albir, Café of the Casa de Cultura .
