Now available! The newly published book: Los Alamos Big Band: Keeping the Music Alive
The definitive history of Los Alamos Big Band; more than the history — this is the inside story.
Chock full of in-action pictures and Band memorabilia, this book tells the story of the Los Alamos Big Band, from its ambitious beginning in a small mountain town — to the modern full-size big band, carrying the tradition of the Big Band era to the present. Follow the stories of the founders and original band members, as you read their first-person account of the early and formative years. Current musicians and long-time members reveal quips, ‘characters’, gig stories, and favorites from the current repertoire of a big band. This book may find you wanting to read the entire story in one sitting!
Book back-cover Review:
I’m delighted to see the fascinating history of the Los Alamos Big Band in print. DWDecker’s story-telling is so engaging and lively that I found myself smiling as I read. His research is impeccable and his interviews give us the inside view from the people who made it happen. This is a worthwhile read that you won’t forget!
