Break out your good dancing shoes! This Monday January 13th was the the City of Lakeway’s first Big Band Bash of the year, and it was a packed house. Locals bee-lined to Lakeway Activity Center for the free dance and big brass tunes. Led by the talented and entertaining Lisa Clark and David Cummings, the Republic of Texas Big Band wowed crowds with their renditions of classics such as Georgia On My Mind, I Get a Kick Out of You, and more waltzes than you can handle.
The impressive 17-piece band, which has changed leadership and members throughout the years, is now comprised of 4 saxophones, 4 trombones, 5 trumpets, a guitar, piano, bass and drums. Singers Lisa Clark and David Cummings fill in for the vocals, and the rest is just details.
