Emerald City Jazz Orchestra at Tula's

Another installment of Big Band Tuesday at Tula's, this time featuring the always swingin' Emerald City Jazz Orchestra. Originally a band for Microsoftees, it quickly evolved into the high-energy, no-holds-barred band that it has been for years. If you need evidence, just listen to the tunes we played in the second set: Jumpin at the Woodside, Honeysuckle Rose, Cherokee, Giant Steps... And there were MORE! Full contact big band -- maybe we should change the name! With such burning soloists like Travis Ranney, Vern Seilert, Steve Tressler, Alexey Nikolaev and more, this is a big band you really shouldn't miss in the Seattle area. Another recurring gig, the ECJO appears at Tula's the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
