“Big Band Birthday Bash” with Ernie Krivda & the Fat Tuesday Big Band

February 6, 2015

What a special night it was down at BLU Jazz+ as we celebrated the 70th birthday of Cleveland sax legend, Ernie Krivda, in a “Big Band Birthday Bash!”
There was a special energy and magic in the room that night, and we want to thank Ernie, the Fat Tuesday Big Band, and you – our fans & patrons, for making it the memorable evening that it was!
Happy Birthday, Ernie – here’s to many more!
