Dale Head, a local firefighting pilot and big band singer, is performing a CD release concert 7 p.m. Saturday at 151 Union Square on Mill Street in Grass Valley.

Head has performed with the Ron Jones Influence (The orchestra used in The Family Guy) in Hollywood, as well as nightclubs and corporate events across California including the Bay Area and the Los Angeles area.

He has been looking for an opportunity to bring his show home to Grass Valley and determined that 151 Union Square, with the feel of a speakeasy, is the perfect atmosphere for an intimate show with a big band.

With a natural command of the swing and big band genre, Head sings, plays trumpet, and leads his talented group of players through a dynamic ride, according to a press release.

His show features hits from Joe Williams to Sammy Davis Jr., as well as Frank Sinatra and Harry James, along with some classic sounding originals and a new take on some old standards.

Dale Head provides a high-powered, yet dynamic, show that is certain to leave you entertained.

“For those who can appreciate the splendor of timeless music from The Great American Songbook, Swing, Straight Up features the classics in an amazing big band format behind the powerful vocals of Dale Head, a hidden wonder who, thankfully so, has decided to share his talents with the rest of the jazz world with a very impressive debut,” said Edward Blanco from All About Jazz

There will be a dinner available. Reservations are $30 for dinner and the show, and $20 for just the show (in advance). Reservations will be $25 at the door.

Contact 151 Union Square for reservations at 530-205-9513.
