Join the Pete Ellman Big Band, along with special guest Isabella Isherwood, on Wednesday, July 15th for a “For Pete’s Ache” CD release party at The Venue in Aurora, IL!
Founded in 2009, the Pete Ellman Big Band has established itself as one of the top big bands in the Chicagoland area. The band has done more than entertain lovers of great big band music. From its beginning, the band has given college, high school and middle school big bands a place to perform and listen to the swinging sounds of big band jazz. The band has also brought in world-renowned guest artists such as Jeff Coffin, Wayne Bergeron, Peter Erskine, Andy Martin, Wycliff Gordon, Eric Miyashiro, Tommy Igoe, Grace Kelly, and Denis DiBlasio…just to name a few.
“For Pete’s Ache” is the first album to be released by the Pete Ellman Big Band. The album spent many weeks on the charts as one of the top five Big Band Jazz albums with one song topping at Number One for eight weeks!! The album features many original songs and arrangements by band members Dan Moore, Larry Harris and Ted Hogarth.
We are very excited to finally have the “For Pete’s Ache” CD Release Party with special guest artist Isabella Isherwood, a featured performer at the 2018 Chicago Jazz Festival and NBC nightly news with Lester Holt!
