Bob Luce, bandleader with the Sunday Night Big Band, said guests can expect a set list full of favorites by Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Count Basie and more. The group specializes in performing songs from in and around the 1940s.
“Our audience seems to like that era and so do we,” he said.
“We try to encourage folks to make a day of it,” Rodgers said. The concert is finished by about 4 p.m., in time to stroll around Westminster and check out a restaurant before it gets dark.
The two groups have been pairing up for four years. Rodgers said the concert has grown over the years as they try to bring more awareness.
“It grows slowly, but it’s working out really well. Being consistent with it, we’ll eventually get where we want to be.”
Their second CD, “I’ve Heard that Song Before,” will be available for sale at the concert as well as online through major streaming platforms.
Guests to the concert will be able to learn more information about Caring Carroll in the lobby where information will be posted. They are always looking for volunteers, Rodgers said.
Volunteers are needed at different levels of commitment. “We’re easy to work with,” Rodgers said. For volunteers, “helping these folks makes them feel really good, even if they can only do a little. Every little bit helps.”
