Band: Ray Abrams Big Swing Band

image

This highly professional swing band, which actually started in the 50’s, under the vision of Hank Dougherty, was acquired by Brooklyn’s famous jazz saxophonist and prolific arranger, Ray Abrams. Ray passed on in 1997, but the band continues to entertain lovers of swing and classic-jazz. The 17 members of the band consistently recreate the unforgettable hard swinging, finger-snapping, toe-tapping sounds of the greatest swing-bands of the 40’s and 50’s. Our musical arrangements feature many of the band’s exceptional soloist, as well as swinging vocals and a fine selection of love ballads, uniquely sung by our featured vocalist, Tulivu-Donna Cumberbatch.

image

The band’s library of musical arrangements, is lengthy and well rounded, ranging from the still modern sounding charts created by founder, Ray Abrams, to the swinging big-band charts from the minds of arrangers like Sam Nestico, Quincy Jones, Sy Oliver, Neal Hefti, and so many others. This valued musical library supports the bands ability to create a well-rounded program of classic-jazz as played by the bands of Basie, Ellington, Hawkins, Foster, Hampton, etc.

The band’s unique ability to perform to the spirit of the music and to swing at the drop of a hat, is consistently nourished by the very dedicated skills of the band’s leader, Ervin Simpson, who has led the band since 1998. No doubt, this ability to swing the most beloved songs from The Classic American Jazz Songbook, explains why the band continues to maintain a growing presence on LI and in the tri-state area.

Band: Lil’ Cliff & The Cliffhangers


Photo by Phil Marino/NY Times

2006 International Blues Challenge Finalists Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are a four piece, blues harmonica driven wrecking crew. These knickerbockers have been singing, swinging and stinging Tri State area audiences for the last three plus years with their own special brand of blues power.

After winning the regional IBC competition, hosted locally by the Downstate Blues Society of Long Island, New York, these four professionals then took their special brand of original jump blues down to Memphis, Tennessee to compete in the annual International Blues Challenge. And wouldn’t you know it, out of literally hundreds of blues artists from all over the world the boys placed in the final top ten!

Fresh from this triumph Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are now out to support their latest indi-cd release “God Bless Women” on Shankbone Records. Through a comprehensive combination of live appearances up and down the Northeast corridor, radio airplay (wfdu, wwoz, wusb to name a few), local cable television appearances (Wes Houston Presents) as well as the most user friendly web site you could hope for (replete with mp3 and electronic press kit downloads) these blues boys knock ‘em out of their shoes and leave them dancin’ barefoot!
