Matt Davenport's American Big Band Christmas Tour


And with that, this magical experience is wrapped. I joined the cast of Matt Davenport’s American Big Band Christmas for shows across the country and it was an absolute BLAST. I’ve recently been realizing that Big Band music is, perhaps the best kind of music there is. There was also a KILLER arrangement of “O Holy Night” that I had the pleasure of singing (hello ending the tune on a high C!!!!!).

I’m no dancer, but choreographer Lauryn Floyd made one out of me, and I didn’t look so bad in glittery dresses with bedazzled shoes after all! Merry Christmas, all!
