Dick Goodwin Big Band to perform at FAC
Dick Goodwin plays trumpet at a concert.
The Dick Goodwin Big Band often plays for major social functions in the Southeast, but in concert this brassy ensemble programs a wild potpourri of styles -- numbers from the swing era and earlier, current tunes from sometimes surprising sources, and new music written especially for the ensemble. "We've been giving concerts annually for the wonderful and discerning audiences at the Kershaw County FAC for quite a few years now and I think they appreciate that we are constantly introducing new material to our playlists," said Goodwin, "although we do occasionally answer requests to repeat a favorite from one of our past programs." Goodwin and members of the band have performed with such notables as Ray Charles, Bob Hope, Marian McPartland, Clark Terry, Billy Taylor, Johnny Mathis, the Spinners, the Platters, the Temptations, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin and many more.
