The World Famous
GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA
7pm
*BCA EVENT

SOLD OUT SOLD OUT SOLD OUT

In September 1942, at the height of his popularity, Glenn Miller disbanded his
famous orchestra and enlisted in the US Army. Not long before he enlisted
his recordings of In The Mood, Chattanooga Choo Choo, A String of Pearls,
Moonlight Serenade and Tuxedo Junction
were all major hit records. Miller
played to sellout crowds, and his music constantly dominated the airwaves.
 
Now, over sixty years since the public first embraced the successful Miller
Sound, both the legend and the music live on. The Glenn Miller Orchestra is
the most sought after big band in the world today.
Still considered the greatest band of all time, its unique sound
is loved by almost anybody that cares for music.

A Tribute to Louis Armstrong:
Troy Anderson and The Wonderful World Band
7:30pm
*BCA EVENT

Returning to the Bienes Center by popular audience demand...Troy Anderson's Armstrong is too natural to be called uncanny, He starts out with the look and slips easily into the rest, the dinner jacket, the trumpet-with hanky, and even the roly-poly voice of "Satchmo". Troy Anderson is the Winner of The Sunburst Convention's Celebrity Tribute Artist Gold Showcase Award as Louis Armstrong....Troy Anderson and The Wonderful World Band are the 1st place Winners of The Celebrity Impersonator Convention Las Vegas Tribute Artist Award 2011...Troy Anderson is also The Winner of The 20th Annual Reel Awards Classic Crooner Award as Louis Armstrong.

The Wonderful World Band is a sextet with the same instrumentation as Armstrong's bands. In detail, musical quality and style this is the best Louie Tribute Band on the scene today. For the past two years Troy Anderson has been performing to sold-out crowds throughout Europe, and we are pleased that he will be returning to the Bienes Center for an exclusive one-night-only engagement with The Wonderful World band, this will be their only South Florida appearance this Winter, DO NOT MISS OUT!

Theater seating will begin at 6:30pm
Performance will begin at 7pm
*BCA EVENT 

Fushu Daiko turns 25! 
The story of taiko drumming in South Florida
is the story of Fushu Daiko – from its beginning in 1990 bringing
the art form to South Florida, to the present and turning twenty-five
in 2015.   To celebrate this big milestone, Fushu Daiko has embarked
on a journey of self-discovery and created a 25-year retrospective
exhibit that will be accompanying its concert series.  Included in
the exhibit are interesting items such as a drummed-out head from
‘Mini-Zil’ - the group’s second-biggest taiko drum, Fushu
memorabilia, and images from 1990 through today.

Their music combines the traditional drums and rhythms of Japan
with musical styles from around the world, such as jazz and rhythm
and blues, to create an exciting, powerful cross-cultural experience
that strives to cross boundaries and create connections in the
hearts of those who hear the taiko’s beat.
