He Wanted To Dance... So He Started A Big Band
Brooks Prumo became a musician because he wanted to dance. Specifically, he loved swing dancing, and didn’t know any big bands in Austin who were playing the songs he wanted to dance to, so he started one.
He took the guitar that had been sitting mostly idle since middle school and started noodling around. “Little by little I learned enough to read some songs, and play some music,” Prumo explained on stage at Jazz, TX.
This set, recorded live at Jazz, TX, features special guest Emily Gimble. You can hear it Saturday night at 7:00 on Texas Public Radio, or preview the show now in the link below.
