The Fabulous Esquires to play at the Los Alamitos/Rossmoor Library

The December program of the Friends of the Los Alamitos/Rossmoor Library will feature “The Fabulous Esquires” a wonderful combo band who performs holiday favorites from the Great American Songbook in the Glenn Miller style.

The Esquires started some 60 years ago when a group of teenagers asked Paul Colaluca if he would help them start a band. Thinking the idea was a crazy one, he sent the teens off with the mission of recruiting instruments and students who could play them. He didn’t plan on seeing them again. But the teens were persistent and persuasive. They returned a month later, enthusiastic players ready to rehearse. The rest, they say, is history! It was Stan Kenton who suggested to Paul Colaluca that the training program become a non-profit foundation, giving many generations of students access to and training in big band swing music. The Esquire Music Foundation was formally established in 1967.

Come enjoy the music and refreshments on Sunday, December 15, at 2:00pm. The Los Alamitos Library is located at 12700 Montecito Rd. in Seal Beach.
