Oswego, NY – The music of one of the area’s most popular big bands will fill the air along West Linear Park as the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce 2013 Summer Concert Series concludes with a live performance by The Do Good Swing Band on Aug. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m. on the Veterans’ Stage in downtown Oswego.
The Do Good Swing Band is a Big Band exactly like those made popular in the 1930s and ’40s.
“We are pleased to have once again worked with the city to sponsor this popular music series,” said executive director of the Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce, Beth Hilton. “The stage at West Linear Park has provided us with a perfect location for the concert series. This final concert in the series will offer members of our community and visitors one more opportunity to listen to some wonderful music while enjoying a breathtaking view of the river and the Oswego harbor.”
“The Do Good Swing Band has become well known throughout Central New York (CNY) and we’ve developed a wonderful following for our authentic swing-era music,” said the group’s founder, Donald R. Goodness. “For many folks, we’ve brought back warm, wonderful memories of the first time they danced to Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Frank Sinatra, and so many others from that era. We’ve got an abundantly talented and outstanding group of musicians who have also played with the Syracuse Symphony, for cruise lines, and in groups accompanying headline entertainment at the New York State Fair. Several are music instructors in local school districts, and one is a recording artist who has won at least two Syracuse Area Music Awards (SAMYs).”
The concert is free and open to the public.
Please bring your own blankets or lawn chairs for the concert.
