After a wildly popular concert last summer, Aurora Swing Nights invites patrons to cut loose and have fun with another Flashback to the 70’s concert on Saturday, June 16 at 8 p.m. It’s easy to laugh at 70’s fads like mood rings, Mr. Microphone, the pet rock, and 8 track players. However, some magnificent music comes from that iconic decade and the Metro Jazz Club will be giving the big band treatment in their throwback tribute to such legendary recording artists as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, Chicago, and many more favorites. Come decked out in bell bottoms and fringe, because with all the Rock, Disco and Soul things are about to get funky at Aurora Theatre.
The Metro Jazz Club is a smokin’-hot 17 piece band, dedicated to the preservation of some of the best music ever composed from the smoothest jazz to the spirited rhythms of swing. Led by jazz sax man Gary Dalton, the band is accompanied by a sultry chanteuse, the magnificent Maxine Cummins and crooner Jason Joines. The concert will also feature recording artist and one of Atlanta’s busiest musical theatre performers, Eric Moore (Christmas Canteen, Once On This Island at Aurora Theatre). Mr. Moore is a soulful tenor whose voice will lift your spirit and take you back to the 70’s in style.
