A swinging sextet with a nationwide following, The Midiri Brothers’ spirited jazz music is certain to bring back memories for those who remember the heyday of Dixie and swing, while also captivating those who are unfamiliar with this exciting style. The group features authentic and creative performances of the music of Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Artie Shaw, the Dorsey Brothers and Red Norvo, in addition to their own special arrangements. Joe Midiri has been showcased as Benny Goodman in recreations of “The King of Swing’s” historic 1938 Carnegie Hall concert, and in the classical world, he has performed as a soloist with numerous symphonies. Other members of the sextet are accomplished musicians in their own right. The Midiri Brothers’ unique and energetic sound can be heard on the regular playlists of nationally syndicated radio programs.
