In an encore episode of The Business Beat, Steve Jones-D’Agostino, strategic partner of Susan Wagner PR + Best Rate of Climb, interviews Dan Gabel, president of the American Big Band Preservation Society, and Bill Doyle, one of the series organizers who, along with Dan, are part of Dan Gabel and the Abletones, which performs Big Band music.
This episode aired originally on June 22, 2014. In the spirit of full disclosure, Steve Jones-D’Agostino did public-relations work on the Jazz at Sunset series for the American Big Band Preservation Society.
Jazz at Sunset returned this past summer to Central Massachusetts. Started in Worcester at the EcoTarium, Jazz at Sunset has been a premier destination for music-lovers for almost 25 years. The 2014 six-week summer outdoor concert series was held on the grounds of SAC Park, with a covered stage featuring Big Band performers.
The Jazz at Sunset series was presented by the American Big Band Preservation Society, a 501(c)3 charitable not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion and performance of Big Band music, with a focus on keeping alive this original American art form for future generations.
The series was sponsored by 90.5 WICN, Jazz+ for New England, Central Credit Union, Kurlan Music Center, Polito Development Corp., Telefunken, and Westborough Inn.
