This Tuesday, June 16, the Castleton village green-located next to the Castleton Federated Church-will be swinging and rocking with tunes from the Big Band-era and today. Enerjazz, a large, new multi-talented assemblage of musical professionals, will blow into town at 7 p.m.

Calling to mind a fabulous blend of Blood, Sweat and Tears, Chicago, Buddy Rich, Chase, the Tonight Show Band, and Maynard Ferguson, this big band entertains with current pop songs of various styles including bebop, latin, rock, fusion, ballads, and funk.
The band brings to life songs and arrangements of memorable musical greats such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie; Glen Miller, Woody Herman, Benny Goodman, Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich, and even Doc Severinsen-just to name a few. They also bring back plenty of other songs, like "The Stripper", "The Continental", "Moonglow," "Fascinating Rhythm", and current tunes.
