The Kallet Presents: Classified
Since its inception in the early 1990s, Classified has grown into the area’s most polished and popular big band, presenting a level of professionalism and attention to detail that sets them apart from most local bands. It has led to opening slots for artists like KC, The Commodores, Eddie Money, Maynard Ferguson, Gap Mangione, the Pointer Sisters and Earth, Wind and Fire.
“I hope that Classified is perceived as musician’s musicians who know how to play for everyone,” says bass player Greeley Ford. “We combine the best of the classics with the best of today. We try to make everybody like us.”
The band has seen many incarnations since their early days, leading to the current lineup of (in addition to Ford) Scott Rutledge, trumpet, vocals; Larry Desiato, lead vocals, percussion; Gary Colmey, keyboards, vocals; Michael Dimeo, trumpet, vocals; Carl Goodhines, keyboards; John Dugan, drums; Bill Mirgo, guitar; Joey Zarr, woodwinds; and Marty Hollister, trombone, vocals.
Come to the Kallet Civic Center for a night of great music and celebration of Classifieds 25 years of Class!
