Dan Gabel presents "The Boston Beat" Lecture
We know Dan as the vivacious leader of one of Southgate’s favorite bands “Dan Gabel & the Abletones” but he wears many hats! Hailed by the Boston Globe as “the real deal, [a bandleader] that looks and sounds like the 1940s.” Dan is a trombonist, arranger, bandleader, historian, and educator. He has toured internationally with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, as well as the Tommy Dorsey, Cab Calloway, and Hal McIntyre Orchestras. Considered an expert on jazz, big bands, and the Great American Songbook, Dan has lectured at colleges, universities, and special events across the country including Harvard, MIT, and Indiana University. Since 2012 he has served as the President and CEO of the American Big Band Preservation Society. Join Dan today for “The Boston Beat: How the great musicians in New England shaped the big band era.” From Mal Hallett and Jack Marshard to Artie Shaw, Hal McIntyre, and Vaughn Monroe, New England has always been home to some of the greatest musicians. 2:00 pm
