All That Jazz @ Phoenix Park Bandshell
Jul 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

All That Jazz Big Band started in 1985 as a rehearsal band in a Middleton basement. With every dance or concert, ATJ proves what its members have learned in rehearsal – there is no better way to experience the Big Band sound than a live performance!

ATJ is a regular feature at the Madison Art Fair on the Square and Tunes at the Monona Terrace, has opened shows for Rockapella and Tom Wopat, and recently gained national exposure on the CBS Early Show. The band has also begun an outreach program for the “next generation” of Jazz musicians, and has performed with and for students in Evansville, McFarland, Mt. Horeb, Spring Green, Verona, and Waunakee, WI.

Paul Heinecke, Director

In 1976 Paul graduated from Concordia College, River Forest, Illinois and was hired as a Director of Bands for Luther North High School in Chicago. In 1980 he and Ruth moved to the Madison, Wisconsin area to start his fund raising business.

Paul has performed with various brass ensembles, orchestras, and bands in the Madison area. He is a featured soloist and ensemble member on two All That Jazz Big Band CDs, and with his wife and brothers, recorded two instrumental Christmas CDs. He served as the Trumpet Section Leader for the Wisconsin Ambassadors of Music 2000, 2004, and 2006 European Tours. Paul is currently the Director for All That Jazz Big Band, the Mount Horeb Community Band, and Verona Area High School Jazz 1 and Jazz Too Instrumental Ensembles.

Current Projects:

Sound System Upgrade. It’s fantastic!!

We have upgraded the sound system for our shows. We acquired a state of the art digital system to enhance the experience at the bandshell.

This is a unique opportunity for a sponsor(s) to  have the naming rights for the sound system for a period of time to be discussed. Each performance, each notice sent out, each program guide, and each social media posting will include the named sound system for the sponsor.

This is a projected $25K expenditure that will give us and the sponsor a long term benefit.

Please contact us directly when you are interested.
