The 16-piece Zeropoint Big Band has been knocking the socks of Central PA music fans since 2009. Their post-modern-retro approach to big band jazz leaves few musical stones unturned. Their playlists range from classics from Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Thad Jones, and Duke Ellington to reimagined rock-and-roll anthems by Queen, the Who, U2, and the Beatles.
Zeropoint is a who’s-who of regional jazz all-stars, with a raft of fantastic soloists including Harrisburg piano-icon Steve Rudolph, brass hot-shots Eddie Severn, Jay Vonada, Barry Long, and Dale Orris, drummer Kevin Lowe, and saxmen Dan Yoder and Rick Hirsch.
Recent appearances include performances at the Dauphin County Wine & Jazz Festival, the Weis Center for the Performing Arts, the State Theatre, and the Central PA Festival of the Arts.
And, for the past six years they’ve appeared at the American Alehouse on the first Tuesday of every month.
That's Zeropoint, your friendly neighborhood big band.
