The Mingus Big Band announced a weekly residency at Manhattan West’s spectacular new variety venue Midnight Theatre. Beginning Oct. 26, the residency performances will be every Wednesday night with doors at 6 pm and 9 pm.

The band celebrates the music of legendary composer and virtuoso bassist Charles Mingus, now in his centennial year. Founded in 1991 by the late Sue Mingus, the group features new arrangements of Mingus compositions.

The Mingus Big Band is highly sought-after by festivals and venues around the world. The band has 11 recordings to its credit, with six nominated for Grammys, including a win in 2011 for Live at Jazz Standard. A new album, The Charles Mingus Centennial Sessions, was released this month.
