"A Stan Kenton Christmas" featuring vocalist Lena

The Capitol Bones All-Brass Big Band presents "A Stan Kenton Christmas" featuring vocalist Lena Seikaly. Seikaly was voted best vocalist and best composer by the Washington CityPaper’s annual “Jazzies” awards, and was a semi-finalist for the 2015 Thelonious Monk Jazz competition.

Opening up the show will be The National Jazz Workshop All-Star Jazz Orchestra directed by Matt Niess. The band showcases incredible regional talent and tomorrow’s jazz super stars. This group has performed with Doc Severinsen, Wynton Marsalis, Terell Stafford, and others.

Twenty five years ago, five of the top trombonists from the District teamed up to make expand the repertoire for their instrument. They called themselves the Capitol Bones, a trombone band band with a modern twist. The group played successfully throughout the country and as far away as California, Texas and Alaska. They came up with another idea- expand into an all-brass big band, and revisit the creative world of Stan Kenton featuring music the 1961 album “A Merry Christmas”.  They only group to receive a blessing from the Stan Kenton estate, The Capitol Bones All-Brass Big Band has become a DC Holiday tradition. Featuring vocalist Lena Seikaly and new arrangements, this dynamic performance will be an event you will want to see and hear each year.
