The John Rozum Big Band brings the amazing Buddy Rich’s music, style and energy to the stage.
Rich is considered one of the most influential drummers of all time and was known for his virtuoso technique, power and speed. Besides leading his own big band, Rich performed with Tommy Dorsey, Harry James and Count Basie.
A big band has four sections: saxophones, trumpets, trombones and a rhythm section. Big bands originated during the 1910’s and dominated jazz in the early 1940’s when swing was most popular.
