|04/14/14 Third Thursday Event - Moved to Monday||
OU Zanesville will be featuring the Rusty Knights Big Band for April’s Third Thursday Event – which has been moved to Monday, April 14, at 8 p.m. The first half of the free concert will be played by the Zanesville High School Blue Knights and the second half will be performed by the Rusty Knights.
The Rusty Knights Big Band was created to keep alive the tradition of Big Band Jazz in the Zanesville and Southeastern Ohio area and to give area musicians a venue to play traditional Big Band music. Originally a practice group comprised of Blue Knights Jazz Band alumni from Zanesville High School, one thing lead to another and soon the group was playing for the public. The Rusty Knights have been playing Big Band music for over 20 years. The group has been known as the “Best Kept Secret in Zanesville!”
The ensemble is made up of local musicians who have a love for Jazz and Big Band music including several high school and college musicians playing on a regular basis. Local vocalists also lend their talents to the group making for a wide variety of musical entertainment.
The group is a traditional big band with trumpets, trombones, saxes and a rhythm section. They perform traditional arrangements of Big Band standards to modern arrangements of popular songs arranged for Big Bands.
The playlist includes:
Stray Kat Strut
Can't Stop Luving You
Come Fly with Me
