Worcester Rocks for Autism Speaks - An Evening with Mike Girard's Big Swinging Thing!

Date: September 15, 2017

MIKE GERARD’S BIG SWINGING THING The scintillating lead singer of The Fools is now fronting Mike Girard’s Big Swinging Thing. Not your typical big band, this band is Rock ‘n Roll with Horns…a ton of them! The brain child of Mike Gerard and saxophonist Steve LeClaire (Valvatross, Tornado Alley), Big Swinging Thing brings explosive sound that is guaranteed danceable and wildly entertaining! Expect to hear diverse covers of the Stones, AC/DC, The Animals, the Doobie Brothers, Billy Idol, Roy Orbison and Tom Jones…plus, come great FOOLS classics! Performers include guitarist and founding member of the FOOLS, Rich Bartlett, former FOOLS bassist Joe Holaday and drummer Jim Taft – then stir in Steve LeClaire and the Tornado Alley Horns and a dozen or so of the best and zaniest horn players in New England, AND the beautiful backup singers “The Jewels!” You’re in for a fabulous fun time to benefit Autism Speaks. www.autismspeaks.org
