Popular "right hand man" Mr. Arnie Carruthers performs his keyboard magic as guest pianist in these last 2 songs of the evening. Arnie is a phenomenal talent, and has played for audiences at The Glacier Jazz Stampede almost every year since its inception.
The Don Lawrence Orchestra is THE premier big band in Montana (and beyond). The DLO has been the most sought after dance band/big band in Montana and the Northwest for many years. In addition to performing all of the popular big band standards, the group can often be heard playing a great number of tunes arranged by Don Lawrence himself.
Such delicious music they make! JUST FABULOUS!
On this occasion they thrilled a happy crowd during the GLACIER JAZZ STAMPEDE in Kalispell, Montana. The festival happens in early October every year and this years dates were October 4th through the 7th.
I enjoyed being a multi-tasker, because I could not resist dancing to this music, and I was also self compelled to run video tape at the same time. SUCH FUN! Thank goodness for tripods!
