Pittsburg Virtual Festival of the Arts: J3 Band
The Bicknell Family Center for the Arts has turned challenges presented by the need for social distancing into an opportunity to showcase area performers and give audiences the feel of live concerts.
In collaboration with the Pittsburg State University Department of Music, staff at the center are spending June recording performances by individuals and small groups on stage in the Linda & Lee Scott Performance Hall.
The J3 Band enjoys playing a broad mix of classic rock and roll, blues and swing, featuring the diverse vocal and instrumental talents of all of its members. Over the next hour you will hear tunes ranging from “The Thrill is Gone,” made famous by BB King in 1970, the 1972 hit “Your Momma Don’t Dance” by Loggins and Messina, “Caldonia,” first recorded in 1945 by Louis Jordan, “Like a Hurricane” written by Neil Young in 1975, “Eye in the Sky” released by The Alan Parsons Project in 1982, and R.E.M.’s 1991 hit “Losing my Religion.”
