bigBANG will be celebrating the birthday and works of the iconic American jazz pianist and composer, Thelonious Monk 1917-1982 on The Falcon Main Stage.
Regularly performing with a variety of major artists locally and internationally, Robert Kopec has long been recognized as one of the finest bassists in the Hudson Valley. His bigBANG big band held a long-standing monthly residency at The Falcon.
Tonight bigBang performs original arrangements of works by Thelonious Monk, as well as original compositions by the bandmembers.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
