Valentine’s Dance w Ben Baldwin & The Big Note

Ben Baldwin and The Big Note arrive at the Dance Hall, Saturday night February 18, for a Valentines dance, a night of love! Ben and the guys have been playing every conceivable club in New England for the last forty years, so it is only right that they finally play at Kittery's classiest dance hall. Over these last decades, The Big Note has earned its almost mythical status as a band from the Land of a Thousand Dances, a band with a lot of talent and a lot of heart. Kent Allyn on piano, Marty Ballou on bass, Milt Reder on guitar, and guest drummer extraordinaire, Jim Gwinn join Ben and his Baritone sax in creating a romantic and soulful evening of music ranging from Johnny Mercer to The Band to Rufus Thomas. Whether you want to sit back and listen or get up and move to the rhythm, an evening with the Big Note is always memorable and always fun.
