Metro Jazz Club 17-Piece Big Band

2009 November 4


All you hep cats who want to boogie to some hot swinging tunes and a fine jazz singer, head to Aurora Theatre in Lawrenceville this Saturday.

Maxine Cummins, now in her 70s, has been singing since she was 3 years old. She has performed with orchestras and combos and has appeared on radio, TV and stage. She began singing jazz more than 50 years ago, and she is still swinging hard!

The Metro Jazz Band is composed of local musicians, some of whom have played professionally.  The band mixes notables such as Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller with Frank Sinatra and Richard Rodgers standards.

The band will also feature guest vocalist Eric Moore, whose soulful voice will transport you to a whole other galaxy. Moore’ s credits include the musicals “Five Guys Named Moe,” “Jesus Christ Superstar: The Gospel” and “Once on this Island.”

At Aurora you are invited to either relax as a spectator in your nice, plush comfy seat or dance in front of the stage.

The Metro Jazz Club performs at Aurora Theatre Saturday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m.
