Stanley Park's Sunday Night Concert: Bad News Jazz and Blues Orchestra


Location: Beveridge Pavilion

The Bad News Jazz and Blues Orchestra, featuring vocalist Cindy Reed is known as 'The Busiest Swing Band in Western MA' with 25 performances scheduled for the summer of 2024.  Based out of Northampton, MA, the BNJBO has been nominated and voted as Winner in the category of 'BEST LIVE JAZZ' in the Hampshire Gazette's 2021, 2022 and 2023 Reader's Polls after being voted as finalist in the 2020 Reader’s Poll.

The Bad News Jazz and Blues Orchestra is a 19 piece big band that carries on the excitement of the big band era by performing music of more contemporary artists such as Brian Setzer Big Band, Michael Buble`, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, Bruno Mars, Flying Neutrinos, Average White Bank Tower of Power and many others. The BNJBO has developed a repertoire that mixes the swing music of the 30s & 40s with the Jump Jive music of today. Audience members at one moment may hear the famous Sing, Sing, Sing drum solo of Gene Krupa, followed by a driving arrangement of Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen, Frank Sinatra’s New York, New York and then Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk.  In existence since 2012, the BNJBO has added several outstanding musicians recently, creating an incredibly tight ensemble with outstanding jazz soloists in every section of the band.

This performance begins at 6:00 p.m. at the Beveridge Pavilion and it is free of charge. Chairs will be provided and food service will be available from The Bubble Mug Cafe at Pottery Cellar.
