Peter Petty and his Titans of Terpsichore to Perform at Solano

FAIRFIELD, CA, MAY 4, 2015: Peter Petty and his Titans of Terpsichore will perform at the Solano Community College Gymnasium in Fairfield on May 15th, 2015. Come enjoy an evening of Big Band music.
This will be a special and fun event planned for faculty, staff, students and the general public. It will be a great way to end the semester.

Peter Petty is the band leader that coined the adage “There are no small rooms, just louder ones.” Charged with reinterpreting music that scintillates, syncopates, and educates, Mr. Petty swings out with the frenetic elegance of a Tasmanian devil in a tuxedo, leading some of the finest stewards of Jazz & Swing to piggyback on the shoulders of such giants as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Mildred Bailey, Cab Calloway, Louie Prima, and even David Bowie! Truly the consummate entertainer, and singing every note of his 3 2/3 octave range with inexhaustible power and captivating control, it’s an infectious, eclectic, electric mash-up that not only connects the dots between seemingly disparate musical genres, but does it with an adventurous and hilarious theatricality that entertains the “swell” out of audiences of all ages.

Dance lessons for East Coast Swing take place from 7:00 pm -8:00 pm and Dancing and Listening are from 8:00 pm -10:00 pm. Tickets are available in advance for $10.00 and will be $15.00 at the door.
