Tommy Hallorans Guerrilla Party
Tommy Halloran returns to the Focal Point, this time with an army of guerrillas!
Tommy Hallorans Guerrilla Swing has been a mainstay on the St. Louis music scene for years. Voted Best Jazz in the Riverfront Times in 14, 15, & 16, the band regularly features many of St. Louis finest jazz musicians organized somewhat loosely under the THGS banner. Rather than rely on strict arrangements and coordinated practices, Halloran leads the band like a group of assassins, relying on the virtuosity and inventiveness of the individual musicians to create the guerrilla sound. With this approach the band moves easily from swing to Latin to blues to ballads, Hallorans original songs blending easily in to the standards and old chestnuts.
For this special concert, the band (usually a quartet) will expand its borders to feature many of the stellar musicians who are also regular guerrillas in a night of music: old, new, borrowed, and blue! It will be loud, it will be quiet, it will be swinging and sweet. It will be a Guerrilla party for the ages.
