The Joe Gransden Big Band with Annie Sellick
Are you feeling lucky? Go ahead. Make your day. Throw your best serape over your shoulder and mosey on over to the Arts Council’s Smithgall Arts Center lawn to hear one of Clint Eastwood’s favorite acts: The Joe Gransden Big Band.
Dirty Harry himself (aka the hombre with no name) endorses The Joe Gransden Big Band:
“Joe is a young man with an old soul and a classic voice. He is a great talent, with a wonderful sense of humor to boot. And don’t forget, he plays a hell of a trumpet!”
Clint Eastwood, Actor/Director
Yes, Clint might have said that to an empty chair, but I’m not going to correct the former Mayor of Carmel, California — or the former Inspector Callahan.
We think you’ll enjoy The Joe Gransden Big Band on Saturday evening, June 3, 2017. Bring a chair (or circle your wagons with your rowdy friends) for another in the Signature Series on the lawn of the Arts Council at 331 Spring Street SW in Gainesville, GA 30501.
Joe’s 17-piece ensemble “harkens back to an era when the Great American Songbook, swing music and the big band sound was all the rage. In this time of digital overload, where music is often formulaically produced by synthesized sounds, Gransden and his band have challenged convention and found an audience that still appreciates the powerful sound that can only come from a finely tuned big band in a live setting,” says the website of the Arts Council.
