A Midsummer Night's Swing featuring Carl Payne Big Band

Carlton Payne Jr. is an extremely talented trumpeter, whose journey in the realm of professional music commenced at the young age of 16. Displaying his undeniable talent for the trumpet, Carlton's passion for jazz and the idea of the Big Band sound sparked a lifelong commitment to the art form. In 2008, he ventured into the realm of band leadership, founding the illustrious Carl Payne Big Band. With an unyielding dedication to preserving the authenticity of the sounds of swing while intertwining contemporary variations, Carlton's musical skill and leadership have solidified his place as in South Carolina's modern jazz. His unwavering commitment to musical excellence continues to inspire both seasoned and aspiring young musicians.

This concert will be the inaugural event hosted in the Koger Center's black box theatre and will encourage attendees to bring their best swing moves to the dance floor.

This summer solstice jazz event helps to celebrate International Make Music Day. An evening filled with premier swing jazz music and dancing, this event takes place in the Rehearsal Hall. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes!
