Default Tommy Igoe's Birdland Big Band

He has decided to leave NY and go on tour. His second stop was thirty minutes from my house this past Sunday. I would not plug this type of music in my ipod, but I have to admit this was one of the best musical perfomances I have seen. If he comes close to your area, I suggest you go see it. Well worth it.

Just for clarification, he took the San Fransisco band members, not the BBB.

Are they touring under the name BBB?

I saw Mr. Igoe and the BBB at Birdland in NYC this past September. The show was unbelievable and the room is so small you can practically hi-five the musicians. The band even takes requests for their second set via an online form which I thought was really cool. I can not recommend this experience more highly to my fellow drummers or really anyone who breathes. I was walking on a cloud for the rest of that night trying to process what I had just taken in.

Also, after the show, he signed my groove essentials book and made small talk with me and my wife for a few minutes. What a nice guy.

And, he mentioned to me that he will be offering skype lessons starting in 2013 too.
