'What's Up' big band at Pleasanton Library at 2 p.m. today

Band to include swing era music, plus music of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, others

A regional favorite, the "What's Up" big band, will offer a free performance starting at 2 p.m. today at the Pleasanton Public Library.

The band members come from a wide range of backgrounds that include working and retired professionals from both the music industry and education, along with musicians holding day jobs ranging from butcher to engineer to scientist.

Their common passion for swing era music fuses the "What's Up" sound with a repertoire that features the music of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Ira Gershwin, and many others.

For more information about the event, sign on to the the library's website at cityofpleasantonca.gov/services/library, or call (925) 931-3410.
