Mike Berkowitz & the Gene Krupa Band at Iridium for Gene's 100th Birthday

Gene Krupa- for the Grateful Web

Star drummer Gene Krupa and his Orchestra were the hottest of the hot stuff in the big band years. Fortunately Mike Berkowitz, an incredible drummer of today rescued the brilliant Krupa arrangements and put together a phenomenal aggregation of some of our New York Jazz world's swingingest musicians and Vocalist extraordinaire, Cassie Miller from L.A. Not just for nostalgia buffs and music historians, any real jazz lover has to be thrilled by the sounds made by this amazing 16-piece group.  Scott Barbarino has booked them into the Iridium, the premiere Jazz room (on West 51 Street and Broadway) on Tuesday, January 13, which coincides with what would have been Gene Krupa's 100th birthday.  The sets are at 8 pm and 10 pm.  This is a rare opportunity to recapture big band music at its most exciting.
