Join us for an evening like no other in #congresssquarepark as Boston’s John Cushing Big Band collaborates with Portland’s own VI VA for an evening of magical modernized standards.

Thursday, September 13 from 6-8pm. Free, as always!

About John Cushing & his Big Band:
John Cushing is a trombonist, singer, composer, and curator of projects, including the John Cushing Big Band. The Big Band is an inspiring collection of more than fifteen musicians playing tunes that integrate the best of the big band tradition with a modern, improvisational and exploratory jazz aesthetic.

About Viva:
VI VA & her back up band, the Reinforcements deliver spicy cosmopolitan grooves in a show that balances the zest of burlesque with classic standards elegantly renewed. Backed by an ever-changing fleet of the jazz elite, she’ll slide her way into your fondest memories with just a flick of her hips. Always thrilling, never the same show twice. The group has played hundreds of sparkling events, each different than the last in song choice, instrumentation, and costume design in dozens of cities across the continents.
