Pride of Indy Concert and Jazz Bands 

The crowd that gathered on the Old Firehouse Lawn last Tuesday to see the Pride of Indy Concert and Jazz Bands was treated not only to some of the finest weather Indy has seen lately, but to some of the most energetic, heart-felt live music the city has heard recently. The all-volunteer Concert Band started off the night with an upbeat program of pop music spanning the 1900s. Ironically, the highlight of their set was Danny Elfman's "Music for a Darkened Theatre." The band handled all the subtle, quirky nuances of Elfman's off-beat orchestration with ease. The Jazz Band kicked off their set with an energetic version of "Birdland." Later in the set Aaron Rambo, a trombone player with the Concert Band, did his best Sinatra on the tunes "Witchcraft" and "Minnie the Moocher." The only low-point was when the rhythm section couldn't agree on a groove for "Malagueña."
