Rockin’ Big Band
The George Cole Orchestra and starring singing guitarist/composer, George Cole. The impossibly suave and debonair Cole brings his “Rockin’ Big Band” to Mildred Own Concert Hall for a night not to be missed! Bring your dancing shoes!
Cole, current guitarist for the David Grisman Sextet and guitar instructor to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt of Green Day, has this to say about his upcoming Pacifica show… “I love the town of Pacifica, you deserve the best and now you are going to get it in the form of a full length concert featuring the best musicians the Bay Area has to offer.” George and his Orchestra are on tour now to promote their forthcoming CD “The Great American Cole Book.” Cole’s Riverside Drive C was #1 for two weeks on the Billboard Jazz Charts in 2010. The George Cole Orchestra is the brain child of George Cole and Saxophonist/Arranger Lincoln Adler and features Greg Sankovich (piano), Carla Kaufman (double bass), Ed McClary (drums), John Capobianco (trumpet), Mara Fox (trombone), and others. Dance the night away or just sit back and listen to the Bay Area’s own George Cole Orchestra!
