About Big Band Ottawa
Inspired by early Big Band legends of the '30s and modern Swing Bands today, Big Band Ottawa performs jazz favorites made famous by Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, Frank Sinatra, Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Louis Prima, Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Petersen, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Herb Alpert, Doc Severinson, Gord Goodwin, Brian Setzer and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
During the cocktail reception, you’ll be enchanted by Steinway & Sons Spirio, the self-playing piano that will make you feel like you’re stepping back into the 1940’s. This stunning and unique piano is like no other. The STEINWAY & SONS SPIRIO is the world’s finest high resolution player piano. A masterpiece of artistry and engineering, SPIRIO enables you to enjoy performances captured by great pianists — played with such nuance, power and passion that it is utterly indistinguishable from a live performance. We are thrilled to partner with Steinway & Sons Ottawa Gallery to bring you this unique entertainment experience at ‘A Night in Casablanca.’
“Steinway’s Spirio isn’t just a fabulous piano for the selfie generation…So revered is the brand by so many musicians that Steinway will be able to create a catalogue of high resolution performances by a massive roster of amazing artists…The Steinway Spirio beats recorded music (that is, of solo piano) by being a real musical instrument. It is as close as one can get to hearing private recitals by world-class musicians, because a player piano plays the exact notes that pianist would have played.” - THE TELEGRAPH • APRIL 22, 2015
