Robert Simone Big Band
1.00pm - Saturday, February 11 - Cross Street Music Hall
The Robert Simone Big Band was formed in November 2010 to perform as part of Rob’s end of year Honours recital at the VCA. Its sole purpose was to perform and highlight the arranging and composing prowess of Rob himself. As a sought-after saxophonist around town, Rob has gained a reputation as being an innovative arranger of music in the big band style, drawing inspiration from many different sources including from some of Melbourne’s finest musicians.
Since the band’s inaugural performance, they have gone on to perform regularly at a number of Melbourne venues, again performing Rob’s own compositions and arrangements. The band itself is made up of a hand picked selection of Melbourne’s best jazz and commercial musicians.
