A Tribute to Benny Goodman: The Julian Bliss Septet

If you missed Benny Goodman during his heyday, you owe it to yourself to catch him now!

British-born clarinetist Julian Bliss brings the legendary King of Swing’s music to life in this delightful evening of songs and anecdotes. Goodman was a colossus of the Swing Era; whether with his big band or smaller combos, he blazed trails, igniting enthusiasm in ballrooms and theaters and on the airwaves with his unmatched flair and genius on the clarinet. This music never loses its appeal; hear it live, and you’ll know why kids danced in the aisles when Benny came to town.
