Making The Season Swing This Friday


Angela O’Neill and The Outrageous 8 will make VFW Ship 8310 swing and sing this Friday, December 14, at 8 p.m.  As revealed by their Wednesday night rehearsal, they’ll be greeting the season with classic holiday tunes and perennial American songbook favorites, all set to the rhythms of rejoicing.  Arranger Harry Smallenburg has made even the most familiar Christmas chestnuts as crunchy as fresh fallen snow.

Along with the solo turns, band leader and mezzo chanteuse O’Neill will keep our feet tapping as will noted singer Al Timss , who’ll be sharing the mike with her. 

People familiar with the LA music scene already know that The Outrageous 8 is outrageously talented, given the A-level roster:

Richard Walker – baritone sax, flute

Ron Cyger – alto sax, clarinet

Sam Morgan – tenor sax

Harry Smallenburg – trombone, vibes

“Hollywood” Paul Litteral – trumpet

Gary Leng – bass

Hank Mehren – keyboard

Michael Rosen – drums

Friday night’s audience can look forward to being outrageously entertained.

Major kudos go to O’Neill for promoting and putting together a fantastic band, as well as producing the shows celebrating the tunes that have stood the test of time.

$20 at the door.  VFW Ship 8310 is at 1006 W. Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, a few blocks west of Victory Blvd.  For more information, visit or call 818.606.2420.
