Centre Stage: Incognito Rocks & Our Ballroom Shines
It’s November already and with less than 2 months until Christmas things are getting busy here at the Cobb Energy Centre. Here is how our week went, October 27th- November 4th.
Incognito Brings the House Down:
Incognito has been the premiere acid jazz funk band for almost 30 years! When we sat down with Bluey, who formed the band in the 70’s, he said there had been more than 1000 band members who have come in and out to play in Incognito, making it a very cooperative band format. Bluey considers them all his family. Check out our interview with Bluey by clicking here.
On October 27th, Bluey, Incognito featuring Maysa, and with Deborah Bond, put on an amazing show. Fans were grooving and loving every moment. We love having Incognito in the house, and we can’t wait to have them again soon. Crowd Album, is always a great source to find all the best fan photos from the night, and there were plenty that night.
ON SALE NOW!
To the delight of fans of the American Big Bands and the Big Band era, the brassy, all-singing, all-dancing, all-American 1940s musical revue, In The Mood is coming to Atlanta in celebrating 24 years on tour.
Complete with authentic costumes, music arrangements and choreography, In The Mood pays homage to America’s greatest generation who fought WWII. It was a time when Americans listened and boogie woogied to up-tempo big band rhythms and danced cheek-to-cheek to intimate ballads. Experience the swing, the rhythm and the jazzy, sentimental and patriotic music of this pivotal time in America’s history.
Tickets start at $22 and are on sale now!
