ABOUT THE MUSIC:
Organized in 2001 under the direction of Caleb Chapman, the award-winning Crescent Super Band has frequently been hailed as one of the best professional bands in the world to be comprised entirely of young musicians. The band has been featured at many of the world’s most prominent music festivals including venues in Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy, and France. The band also has a strong national presence with recent performances in Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington DC, Telluride, and Los Angeles. One of the crowning performances of their career was their headlining debut at Carnegie Hall in May of 2013.
On multiple occasions since 2007 DownBeat Magazine has recognized the Crescent Super Band with their coveted “Downbeat Award”, marking the band as the best in the country. The band has also won 9 “Best of State” awards for Utah, including 7 consecutive years as Utah’s “Best Professional Band” in any genre. Twice they have received the prestigious “Best of State Statue Award” identifying the band as the top organization in Arts and Entertainment in Utah, beating out every other professional music, arts, and film group for the honor.
They’ve caught the attention of many of today’s top artists as well. Since its inception, the band has performed with over two hundred guest artists. Some of these include Grammy-winners Gordon Goodwin, Joe Lovano, Bob Mintzer, Randy Brecker, Nicholas Payton, Christian McBride, Eric Marienthal, Dave Weckl, Bob Mintzer, Ernie Watts, Peter Erskine, and Dave Samuels. Other notable guest artists have included Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), Chester Thompson (Genesis), Steve Smith (Journey), Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr & his All Starr Band) and jazz icon, Toshiko Akiyoshi.
The Voodoo Orchestra was formed in 2007 under the direction of Caleb Chapman. The band has gained national attention for their high energy performances . . . and the fact that this pro band is comprised entirely of musicians 18 and younger.
