The Friends of the Menlo Park Library present a very special free concert from the Montclair Women's Big Band! This East Bay gem combines an audacious sense of swing, tight ensemble work, and inspired solos, all with a vivid cast of some of the best jazz women in the San Francisco Bay Area. The group's mission is to swing, and this 17-piece ensemble delivers a brassy, blues-drenched wallop!

No reservations are required to attend this event.

About the Montclair Women's Big Band

The Montclair Women's Big Band was founded in 1998 by veteran trumpeter and bandleader Ellen Seeling, with producer Barbara Price. All About Jazz claims "the Montclair Women's Big Band is one of the most formidable jazz ensembles on the West Coast....this is premium-grade big band jazz, rigorously blended for high mileage and maximum pleasure."

The band’s high-profile performances have included gigs for the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Jazz Festival, and the San Jose Jazz Festival, as well as performances for Hillary Clinton, and on NPR’s "Piano Jazz."
