THE TIM GILL ALL-STARS BIG BAND
THE CICADA CLUB
SUNDAY, APRIL 27

The Tim Gill All-Stars 11-piece Big Band featuring star vocalist Miss Adryon De Leon is not your grandfather’s big band -- Their irresistible cocktail of swinging, vintage groove mixed with hip, youthful energy puts a 21st century spin on the iconic crooner image.

Downbeat-award winning Singer, Trumpeter, and Arranger plunges into the fray with his high-octane ensemble of world-class entertainers.

He crafts a new take on American Songbook classics and serves up unique, ear-catching original tunes; whether they are packing a dance floor or heating the dining room, Tim Gill and his All-Stars always deliver a one-of-a-kind show you ll never forget.
