Boston Promenade will make a comeback for a charity concert entitled ‘A Night at The Copacabana with Boston Promenade’ at the River City shopping centre on June 14 at 8pm. Three Thai artists will join them on stage.
Next Friday will be a fun night for jazz lovers as Boston Promenade return with mellow jazz, pop and rock hits that will get everyone dancing.
The popular jazz and party band from Finland will perform during "A Night at The Copacabana with Boston Promenade", a charity concert set for June 14 at 8pm. The venue is the River City shopping centre's Grand Hall on Charoen Krung Soi 24.
The concert is organised by VR1 Media Group with the aim to raise funds for the construction of a school building under the Phra Dabos Foundation for Southern Thailand. It will see the big band also performing some of the King's compositions including HM Blues and Magic Beams.
Founded by the Student Union of the Helsinki School of Economics in 1964, Boston Promenade consists of 26 musicians between 25 and 35 years old. The group has evolved into a popular party band at larger company functions in Finland and they perform regularly on Finnish national television.
Boston Promenade's musical repertoire is very broad. They start off with entertaining jazz and as the evening develops, so does the music. They often play hits from the 1970s by Tom Jones, Stevie Wonder and the likes, and move to the pop and rock music of today by Robbie Williams and Brian Setzer, for instance.
For the upcoming show, they will be joined by three Thai artists _ Pongsak "Aof" Rattanapong, Radklao Amaradit and Tanasit Jaturaput (aka Ton-AF8).
Tickets cost 1,000 baht from VR1 Media Group's office. Call 02-641-5234 ext 317.
