Kelly Park 16 piece BIG Band with Special Guests!
The Kelly Park Big Band was founded in 2014. The band is dedicated to the writing and performance of fresh original music and arrangements, it is designed to be a concert band, not a dance band. Although much of the music is composed and arranged by Kelly, he has created a platform that gives band members and local composers an opportunity to write for a big band with no constraints; an opportunity to be as free and creative as possible.
Kelly Park is a former faculty member and alumnus of the Berklee College of Music, Boston MA. He has been a fixture of the San Francisco Bay Area music scene for many years, most notably as Musical Director of the Rrazz Room, the premier SF nightclub from 2007-2013. There he performed with such stars as Loretta Devine, Keely Smith, Pia Zadora, the Shirrelles, Deborah Gibson, Trini Lopez, Deana Martin, and many others. He has performed throughout the United States and Europe, and was the owner of the jazz club Kelly's of Alameda.
Special guests Gina Harris and Victoria Phillips will be joining the band.
Gina Harris is best known as a jazz singer who chooses the less heard, musically complex and gorgeous tunes by great composers. And she has the chops to pull these songs off." Anna de Leon of Anna's Jazz Island
"With a glowing tone and delivery reminiscent of the Great Etta Jones, Torbie Phillips treats us to tasteful renditions of these Classic songs that are both mellow and swingin'."
