|Library hosting Big Band Swing at Concordia Bank -- Thursday, March 13|
The "Big Band Swing Era" is coming to Concordia Parish on March 13th at 7 p.m.
Visit the Concordia Bank Lobby in Vidalia to hear the likes of Ace Cannon, Boots Randolph, and Kenny G. Lawrence Gibbs will be playing the sexiest instrument around, the saxophone, with Rod Payne on piano.
This performance is funded by the Louisiana State Arts Council, The Arts Council of Central Louisiana and the Louisiana Division of the Arts. This concert is free and open to the public.
Lawrence Gibbs is currently the Associate Director of Bands, University Symphonic Band, and the University of Jazz Ensemble at Louisiana Tech University. He is also the Founder and Director of the "Russ-Town Band", a select community band based in Ruston, Louisiana.
As a former professional musician, he did a five-year stint in Las Vegas and has performed with Bob Hope, Liberace, The Nelson Riddle Orchestra, Connie Francis, Susan Anton, and the gospel group "The Martins," among others.
Rod Payne is, without question, this area's most visible musician. His command of many different styles of music has kept him busy at the piano and keyboard for more than 30 years. He has performed at hundreds of corporate events, wedding receptions, dances and society affairs.
In addition to performing, Rod has written numerous jingles and theme songs. His long list includes The National Organization of Women, Lady Techsters, National Teenagers Pageant, Neville Tigers, First National Bank and many more.
When asked if it's time to slow down his schedule, his answer is "No, there's so much more to learn and enjoy with music."
He says playing with outstanding musicians and singers as Lisa McCalmon, Adam Jones, and others keep music fresh and challenging.
