New Concert Announcement: Shaun Johnson's Big Band Exeprience

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

The Eau Claire Regional Arts Center (ECRAC) is proud to announce Shaun Johnson's Big Band Experience on Thursday, March 27, 2014, 7:30 p.m. at the State Theatre.

Shaun Johnson returns to the State Theatre with a brand new show! Johnson is an Emmy-winning singer/songwriter and the lead singer of the nationally known a cappella group Tonic Sol-fa. He has now decided to take on the sound of the swing era along with an eight-piece band.

Johnson's Big Band Experience blends the musical stylings of Tony Bennett and Michael Bublé to create a contemporary big band sound with a pop flair. It is an energetic and upbeat show with something for everyone. The band features musicians who have played with The Temptations, Aretha Franklin and Johnny Mathis and who have been honored with Music Teacher of the Year awards.

When asked why he wanted to do this now Johnson replied, "I read that big band style originally offered hope at a time when we were coming out of the Depression… and it isn't that much different today. It's the magic that I still love."

Fans agree Shaun is amazing with music or a cappella! "I have been a fan of Tonic Sol-fa since 1995 and was apprehensive of a solo, but was I ever wrong! Shaun shines during his big band experience. This isn't a run on a solo career but a fun time for a guy who doesn't have a lot of other commitments when he is off tour. LUCKY US! This concert is fun, entertaining, well put together, and WELL worth every penny spent on it!"
