Jimmy Borges & Blue Note Swing Orchestra
If you want to experience a real treat, come down to The Moana Hotel to hear this very vibrant 30 piece youth Jazz Orchestra who’ve come to Honolulu to perform. Each year Hawaii’s own vocalist extraordinaire, Jimmy Borges, performs with them and usually they fly directly to Maui. This year, we’re lucky to have them here and the concert is free! This group of musicians has impressed jazz greats much older than the kids who make up this well-tuned orchestral group and if you close your eyes for a moment… you’d think you were back in the 1940s with Frank Sinatra performing the classics of the day. (In fact, Sinatra gifted Jimmy with his original arrangements. Sinatra loved Jimmy’s voice and he probably believed that if anyone was going to perform those songs the way he thought they should be done, it would be Borges.) So get there early to secure seating.
It’s a FREE Concert Saturday, July 7, 2012 from 7:00pm to 10pm! at the Sheraton Moana Hotel. Tel (808) 922-3111 ~ There is open seating, no reservations will be taken, and extra chairs will be set up for the concert.
