Blackbird Society Orchestra

Friday, August 2 · view days & times
Price: Free
Venue: BB&T Jazz Cabaret Stage

Founded in 1997 by guitarist, Richard Barnes , the band had one simple mission - to preserve the music of an era forgotten , the "Roaring 20s" , the "Jazz Age" , the "Gatsby Era" (and not that silly movie with Leonardo DiCaprio). Sadly , the beginnings of jazz , blues, swing and popular music have been lost or overlooked in the history books and many of the pioneers of jazz have all but been forgotten by the general public. Bands that once graced the airwaves in Model A's or on Victrolas are no longer heard unless their 78rpms are dusted off from boxes in the attic and heard through scratchy old recordings.
