Live to Air with Bob DeAngelis
June 6, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
This Juno Award-winning bandleader and instrumentalist has entertained for heads of state, including prime ministers, presidents and the British royal family. Now, he’ll be performing an evening of outstanding jazz just for you.
Bob DeAngelis and his band will play a 90-minute Live to Air concert of traditional Dixieland tunes on Thursday, June 6. It will be broadcast live to the world, but you could be one of the few people with the privilege of having a seat in the small crowd in the Long & McQuade Music Hall.

Internationally recognized for his woodwind playing prowess, DeAngelis’s diverse performing career includes appearances at international jazz festivals from Toronto to Montreux.
He was the featured soloist in the hit musical Fosse, where he recreated Benny Goodman’s legendary performance of Sing, Sing, Sing at Carnegie Hall. In January of 2008, his 50-piece Champagne Symphony staged a triumphant Carnegie Hall concert in New York when they performed his signature The Coronation of a King: A Tribute to Benny Goodman concert in the 70th anniversary celebration of Goodman’s famous 1938 concert. The 2004 launch of his symphonic tribute to Benny Goodman’s musical legacy with the Champagne Symphony Pops Orchestra conducted by John MacLeod introduced DeAngelis’s brilliant clarinet-playing to entirely new audiences. That program continues to fill halls and garner rave reviews wherever it is presented in North America.
Don’t miss this unique chance to see Bob DeAngelis perform live in the intimate setting of the JAZZ.FM91 studios.
