One Note is a 15 piece big band comprised of Quad City musicians who love to play music.  Many members perform in other bands including the Quad Cities Wind Ensemble, The Big River Brass Band, Manny Lopez Big Band, Tri-Tones, Sazon De Antano and other area bands.  This group is a hard hitting jazz band with a full brass and sax section.  One Note plays all styles of music from swing to blues, soul, and a little bop.
 
One Note originated as the horn section for One Voice, an annual holiday event at the Taxslayer Center. After many years of rehearsing and performing together for years in the cold, One Note is excited to bring their talents into the summer.  You will hear songs from Al Horney, Horace Silver, Carmichael and many more. You don’t want to miss this year’s fair weather version of One Note.
 
Players include: Trumpets – Manny Lopez, Joe Brown, Ben McKay, Trombones – Bruce Bogen, Thomas Knowles, Dennis Mott, Ethan Pritchard, Saxes – Danelle Kvapil, Derek Reid, Derek Ross, JoAnne Hosch, Keven Preslan, Rhythm – Ron Wilson, Manuel Lopez III.
 
The Glenview Jazz Band hails from Glenview Middle School in East Moline, Illinois. The band meets daily, as a class, for 40 minutes where the students are introduced to the intricacies of jazz music. “We go from blues to swing to bebop in our studies,” says Joseph Brown. “The class is made up of over fifty 7th and 8th grade students interested in learning and playing jazz music. This school year Glenview students were selected as 10 of the 18 musicians chosen for the Illinois Music Educators Association’s District 2 Jazz festival, including top chairs on trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax, and baritone sax.  Glenview is very proud of its students.”
 
The touring jazz band will play selections from swing to funk to rock and roll. “We work hard, and we play harder with an aggressive sound rarely found in musicians of this age” said Joseph Brown. “If you love jazz music and seeing it encouraged in young people, then you will love the Glenview Jazz Band.”
