Danjam Orch @ The Rex – Aug 2017
It has been almost two years since my big band has performed live as my life has undergone a few major changes – including joining The U.S. Army Field Band as a Staff Arranger and moving to Washington, DC! Now that things have more or less settled, I am proud to announce that one week from now the Danjam Orchestra will be back at The Rex for two nights of live music. We will be tackling 3 brand new arrangements including an original composition by Jason Logue. Please come out and support these amazing musicians!
