The 8-Bit Big Band, a 33-member jazz/pops orchestra created by Charlie Rosen, presents unprecedented “big band” performances of original arrangements of popular video game music.
It’s a high-energy celebration of the breadth and richness of music from globally popular video game franchises, including the Super Mario series, the Legend of Zelda series, Final Fantasy, Donkey Kong, and Pokemon. The performance features special guests, including Grace Kelly B.M. ’12; Berklee College of Music faculty members Sarpay Özçağatay and Sara Caswell; and Berklee student Carlos (insaneintherain) Eiene.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
