The Vidalia Outdoor Concert Series 2017 will conclude with the 2nd Annual “Savor Vidalia” A Celebration of Wine, Food & Jazz featuring the return of Joe Gransden and his 16 Piece Big Band. Gransden and his band blew away the attendee’s during last year event. Originally formed in 2009 Joe and the guys have continued to build momentum and are performing numerous shows around the country. They have quickly become one of the busiest groups on the jazz scene. The band’s new release entitled “It’s A Beautiful Thing” has sold incredibly well and is getting radio air play all over the world! The cd was recorded live at Cafe 290 in Atlanta Georgia where the band holds a steady gig twice every single month. “The Big Band truly has its own sound and really swings!” says Gransden. “I attribute that to the arrangements that were all written by jazz trombone great Wes Funderburk! It’s such a pleasure to front a band of top musicians that can interpret Wes’s arrangements perfectly! These guys are the best!” Their legion of fans continues to grow as well. Opening the concert is the 3 Rivers Jazz Ensemble, of the larger, 3 Rivers Symphony Winds group based in Glennville and comprised of talented musicians from the region.
