Tonight’s Concert Pick: The Gang Age at The Fire, The Big Horn Jazz Band at Johnny Brenda’s
Local trio The Gang Age will perform at The Fire tonight, alongside High Council and Robot Hearts. The Gang Age twist together blues and indie rock with a knack for earworm melodies, spurred on by the vocals of front-woman Gina Cardillo. Tonight’s show also serves as the release show for High Council’s Time Served. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here. Below, watch Gina Cardillo perform “Boy You Know” in a Stairwell Session video.
The Big Horn Jazz Band will fill the stage tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. The 15 piece orchestra, led by Philadelphian Dennis Sigovich, pays tribute to jazz great Maynard Ferguson. About five years ago, Sigovich teamed up with a horde of local musicians including sax player Larry McKenna, musical arranger Ed Etkins and original Maynard Ferguson Band member Joe Mosello to keep Ferguson’s jazzy, swinging compositions alive. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show can be found here. Below, watch Maynard Ferguson and his band perform “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.”
