Where can you find the smooth hypnotic sounds of Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Nat King Cole and other big band artists? On December 8th, Quinta Mazatlan will host the “5th Annual Big Band Concert in the Park” featuring the Dean Canty Band!
This orchestra dedicated to that big band sound has 18 musicians and one vocalist. The band will play traditional and contemporary Christmas songs and some jazz along with big band and modern hits.
Based out of the Rio Grande Valley, the band has been performing for over 35 years locally, nationally and in Mexico. It has backed such groups as Platter, Four Diamonds, Four Aces, Four Lads, Gene White Snow from Las Vegas and Four Wunnerful Women from the Lawrence Welk Show.
Music, Fun and Santa
Alongside the Dean Canty Band, there will be a special visit from Santa, but no visit from Saint Nick is complete without some cookies and hot chocolate!
The performance will be from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 10th. Admission is $5.00 per person.
Due to weather inclinations, the Big Band Concert in the Park will be held at the McAllen Performing Arts Center in McAllen. For more information, call 956.681.3370 or visit the Quinta Mazatlan website.
