Peter Petty and His Titans of Terpsichore

PETER PETTY & His Titans of Terpsichore
December 13, 2015 "Jazz Sunday"
ALSO, it's STJS Election Day

PETER PETTY & His Titans of Terpsichore
13-piece swing band in tuxedos -- high energy fun!
Engaging & entertaining! DO NOT MISS!!! Peter Petty’s versatile vocals (a la Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, the Rat Pack) and swingin’ big band charts are played by a talented orchestra dressed in tuxedo attire. It's a special treat just for STJS Election Day — and to welcome the holiday season. This is one of Sacramento’s most entertaining swing bands. PETER PETTY and His Titans of Terpsichore have performed at Mondavi Center, Crocker Art Museum, Fairytale Town, Midtown Stomp, and galas for Sacramento Ballet.
