Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival: Lionel Hampton Big Band, Jimmy Heath, Carmen Bradford and more

Saturday, February 26 2011

The Lionel Hampton Big Band, joined by Jimmy Heath, will lead the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival Saturday evening concert. The band will include vocalist Carmen Bradford as well as drummer Ed Shaughnessy and tenor sax Pete Christlieb, both of who played with “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” band. Special guests are common on Saturdays as well.

The 2011 festival will wrap up with a special homage to Lionel: a “mallet-palooza” percussion extravaganza that will feature the Legacy Percussion Orchestra, which is in residence at Alma College and is led by director David Zerbe.

The evening concert will take place at 8:30 p.m. in the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center, 1000 Stadium Way in Moscow.

Tickets are available for all nights with prices varying from $25 -$39 per night. Tickets may be purchased at the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center Ticket Office by calling (208) 885-7212 or toll free 1-88-88-UIDAHO, or online at
