Presented by the Town of Somers, as part of their Sunday Summer Concert Series, The Bensen-Scott Big Band will be performing from 6 to 8pm.
Fresh from their very enthusiastically received concert at Westchester County’s annual Independence Day Celebration at Kensico Dam Plaza, The Bensen-Scott Big Band knows how to get their audience engaged…they hit those notes you feel in your toes-the ones that make you want to get up and dance. SERIOULSY.
Formed by trumpeters Gene Bensen and Regent Scott, this 20 piece band has been delighting listeners of all ages in the tri-state area since 2001.
Big Band music reaches across generations like few other genres. Bensen-Scott’s stylized vocals and updated arrangements stay true to the classic compositions, but give the music a fresh and supple sound.
Lots of brass sets the mood and tempo-adding both nuance and punch: The sound is, well, BIG. Notes can burst out of nowhere; bounce, like gentle raindrops, or linger, floating in the air like delicate, opalescent soap bubbles-listen to a preview here.
Free, and open to the public-come early, bring seats, and good friends.
The weather will be perfect, and you will just be SO darn glad you were a part of it!
