Rancho Santa Big Band Orchestra to swing at Village Church


Big band music blows into the Ranch from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9, at the Village Church, 6225 Paseo Delicias.

The Rancho Santa Fe Big Band Swing Orchestra, a 17-piece outfit led by professor and former president of the San Diego Musicians’ Association Jack Wheaton, featuring producer and trumpeter Dominick Addario, vocalist and events coordinator Marie Addario, and concert director Dave Murray, will perform its rousing 13th annual concert celebrating The Big Band era.

This indoor pops-like event (bring your own wine and appetizers) packs its performances, and this concert will be no exception.

The nonprofit orchestra provides decorations, glasses, table linens and of course the multitalented musicians who hail from LA, Orange and San Diego counties. Many of the musicians have played with the bands of the ’30s and ’40s, and Jack Wheaton never misses a chance to recall a good band story or historical note.

Tables of 10 may be reserved by calling Marie Addario at 858-756-4542. For more information, visit Tickets are $45 per person or $400 per table of 10. Individual tickets may be picked up at the door but must be reserved ahead of time.
