100TH BIRTHDAY OF BUDDY RICH CELEBRATED AT THE CATALINA JAZZ CLUB IN HOLLYWOOD
Buddy Rich's 100th birthday year celebration on Monday January 23rd at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood. The Buddy Rich Band, along with Buddy's daughter Cathy Rich and renowned drummers Gregg Potter and Kenny Aronoff will be performing.
The Buddy Rich Band has all of the excitement, drive, and showmanship that Buddy brought throughout his career. Not a tribute, not “The Next” Buddy Rich, but a full blown sixteen piece big band charging through Buddy’s original charts playing classics like Mercy, Mercy, Love For Sale, Nutville, and Birdland, along with new charts just as BR would have played them. An incredible group of talented musicians that bring Buddy’s music into the present day. This is not your grandparents music! No nostalgia. This is a contemporary take on a classic style. Buddy never looked back. He was a musical visionary who was always ahead of the curve. The band has toured from New York to London,Hollywood to Tokyo.
