Redwine Jazz Concert

Ben Redwine Jazz in Concert at First Christian Church,

May 18th at 7pm!  Free admission, freewill offering will be taken.

 

The Redwine Jazz Band performed extensively in the Washington, DC region from 2003 until 2016, when band leader, Ben Redwine, relocated to Covington, Louisiana.  He’s putting the band back together for a Louisiana tour, performing in New Orleans, Opelousas, Baton Rouge, and Covington!  The band will perform jazz standards and original compositions, presenting a wide array of music from all six of their professional CD and DVD output, including bossa nova, traditional jazz, and American “hokum”.  In addition to performing impressive music, the band incorporates historical facts and entertaining repartee—ensuring an enjoyable evening for everyone!  

Ben Redwine performs frequently with the LPO, the Baton Rouge Symphony, and performs jazz concerts throughout Louisiana.  He retired from the US Naval Academy Band in 2014, and has taught music at two major universities.  Ben has been a featured soloist on four continents.  John Previti performed with Danny Gatton for two decades, and is the East Coast’s premiere jazz and R and B bassist. Tom Mitchell is a hard swinging jazz guitarist, performing extensively in the Washington, DC region, was a member of Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks, and has recorded albums and movie sound tracks with Annie Savoy from Lafayette, Louisiana.
