Moonlighters to take stage tomorrow

T he big band sound of the Moonlighters will take the stage of the Whitehall Band Stand at 7 p.m. this Friday.

The Moonlighters consist of 15 to 16 members and have been performing together since 1994. The group is a popular choice at concert venues throughout Vermont and eastern New York.

The music of Glenn Miller, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Duke Ellington and many others are featured during each performance of the Moonlighters.

A typical concert features a couple of trombones, half a dozen saxophones, clarinets, a bass guitar, keyboard and drummers. There are usually two to three vocalists who lend their voices to each performance as well.

The band is based in Hartland, Vt.

Following this week’s performance, Enerjazz is set to perform on Aug. 10, the Rutland City Band on Aug. 17 and the Talegatorz on Aug. 24 (6:30 p.m.)

All performances are held at 7 p.m. unless noted otherwise, and admission is free. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own chairs or blankets to sit upon.

The Music in the Park concert series is made possible by donations and contributions from local businesses and organizations including the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
