As part of the continuing St. Louis Scottish Rite Cathedral Performing Arts Series, the Scottish Rite Preservation Committee presents the Cathedral Renovation Fundraising Concert on February 24, 2013 at 3:00pm, featuring Dean Christopher and The Big Little Big Band.
Known for his stylish interpretations of the music and personalities of the Rat Pack-era, Dean will pay tribute to “Ol’ Blue Eyes” during this concert of Sinatra favorites.
With over 30 years experience as an actor, singer, comedian, and impressionist, Dean Christopher’s stage, film, and television resume is extensive. Dean has opened for Don Rickles, as well as Frank Sinatra, Jr. He is one of St. Louis’ most popular performers and has performed in venues from New York to L.A. Dean recently released a CD called “Swingin’ with the Best”, for which he wrote the title song.
The Big Little Big Band is an eleven-piece jazz ensemble, made up of St. Louis area based professional musicians. They perform the classic sounds of the great big bands like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and Stan Kenton, as well as modern arrangements of classic jazz standards. The leader and jazz trumpeter of the ensemble is Scott Vignassi. Scott retired from the USAF Band after 24 years of service, and he has performed with many notable jazz greats, including Sammy Nestico, Arturo Sandoval, Maynard Ferguson, Marvin Stamm, and Toni Tennille.
