Clint Eastwood’s Son to Play Jazz Concert in Tucson
Presented by the Arizona Small Business Association
TUCSON, AZ (Tuesday, November 4, 2010) – Kyle Eastwood, son of actor-director Clint Eastwood, will perform at the Sheraton Tucson Hotel and Suites located at 5151 E. Grant Road on Thursday, November 18. The performance is part of the Arizona Small Business Association’s (asba) holiday business mixer open to the general public and designed to encourage collaboration between the business and arts communities.
“asba is pleased to create a forum where business professionals and arts patrons can come together to further the dialogue on how they can support one another,” states asba CEO, Donna Davis.
“How often do you attend a film, concert, or theater event, and after surveying the audience, wish for the chance to get to personally connect with them?” asks asba Director of Marketing and Events, Patricia Possert. Attendees are invited to mix business with pleasure at the pre-concert mixer and bring plenty of business cards, appetites, smiles and conversation.
Eastwood has established himself as an influential and contemporary jazz musician who has carved his own path in the music industry. His style is contemporary and hard-bop. The eldest son of actor Clint Eastwood, Kyle Eastwood has released three critically-acclaimed albums, toured worldwide, and composed music and soundtracks for several Clint Eastwood films including Flags of Our Fathers, Gran Torino, and Invictus, as well as Academy Award®-winning films Letters from Iwo Jima, Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby. Eastwood received a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for Gran Torino.
“The Kyle Eastwood band is an experience like no other,” states Possert. “Mr. Eastwood’s 2007 show here in Tucson ended with over 400 people giving the band a standing ovation. For a couple of hours, the audience was transported from Tucson to Paris, France, and it was magical.” Band members include trumpeter Alex Norris, piano/keyboardist Rick Germanson, saxophonist Jason Rigby, drummer Joe Strasser and critically acclaimed bassist/composer Kyle Eastwood.
The pre-concert mixer will go from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. and includes heavy hors d'oeuvres with concert from 6:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Eastwood will personally autograph CDs after the concert.
