BIG BANDS

Big bands are jazz orchestras usually consisting of ten or more musicians with three sections: reeds, brass and rhythm.

Originating in the early 1910s and dominating jazz into the early 1950s, big band describes a genre of pop music.

Big bands started as accompaniment for dancing. In contrast to the typical jazz emphasis on improvisation, big bands relied on written compositions and arrangements.

Big bands in the 1920s – 1930s, typically had two or three trumpets, one or two trombones, three or four saxophones doubling clarinet and flute, and a rhythm section of double bass, piano, guitar and drum kit.

In the 1940s, Stan Kenton’s band used up to five trumpets, five trombones (three tenor and two bass trombones), five saxophones (two alto saxophones, two tenor saxophones, one baritone saxophone), and a rhythm section.

Duke Ellington at one time used six trumpets. Boyd Raeburn drew from symphony orchestras by adding flute, French horn, strings and timpani to his band.

In the early 1940s, the big bands of Tommy Dorsey, Harry James, Les Brown, Artie Shaw, Glen Miller and more, added violins and cellos – ‘strings’.

2SER RADIOTHON

2SER IS BRINGING BACK THE FAMILY FOR RADIOTHON 2022. SUBSCRIBE NOW

After years of COVID restrictions, 2SER is getting back into the studios for radiothon – our biggest revenue raiser for the year – and we’re getting the family together in person!

From Oct 7 to 21 the station takes a break from regular programming to celebrate everything that makes 2SER great! The music, the talks and, most importantly, the 2SER family! Under the theme of We Are Family, we’ll be asking everyone to become financial subscribers or to donate.

2SER Breakfast presenter, Danny Chifley, said ”Subscribers and donors are so important for the station – they help us maintain our independence and provide us with some stability in an ever-shifting cultural and economic environment”

“When sponsorship of events abruptly evaporated at the start of the pandemic, our subscribers helped us stay afloat. When lightning struck our antenna three years ago, our donors got us right back on air”, said Danny. “So we love our family and we’re really excited to be reconnecting again”

Anyone who subscribes during radiothon goes into the draw for incredible prizes including a vintage turntable and record voucher from Egg Records, Newtown or a Complete Studio Kit from RØDE that contains everything you need to make professional, studio-quality recordings at home. There’s also small business subscriber prizes including an Atomic Brewery Dinner and Drinks for 10 people.
