New Duke, a classic 8-piece horn band from the Connecticut and New York City areas, is led by Guilford resident Brian Torff and features lead vocalist Darryl Tookes.

This performance will feature new, updated arrangements of Duke Ellington classics including “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” “East St. Louis Toodle-oo” and “Rockin’ in Rhythm.”  The group is influenced by Ellington, Frank Zappa, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Gil Evans, the Beatles and James Brown and brings the past forward by combining classic grooves with topical issues.

No need to travel to New York to hear a smoking hot big band!

Location: Mary Baldwin Room, Main Level
