If you had to miss or couldn’t get enough of the H2 Big Band at Live at the Vineyards this year, now’s your chance – the H2 Big Band is bringing their big sound to DazzleJazz September 28!

Co-led by trumpeter Al Hood and pianist Dave Hanson, this hand-picked group is comprised of 16 world-class soloists – including Brad Goode,  Gabe Mervine, and Ken Walker.

Special guest vocalist Heidi Schmidt will accompany the group onstage at Dazzle for two tunes.

This amazing ensemble unveils the like-mindedness, aesthetic temperament, and synergy of its leaders.

Between savoring the fresh imagination and emotional heat of the swinging interpretations that showcase Hanson’s portraits and enjoying the strong individual talent of this 16-piece orchestra – you’ll see this is a dynamite big band not to be forgotten!
