For 35 years Vince Giordano has fronted his virtuosic big band—actually, he conducts, sings, and holds down the rhythm on string bass, tuba, and bass saxophone. Decked out in crisp tuxedos, the Nighthawks blast out the dance music that served as the soundtrack of American life from the 1920s through WWII. There’s a Future in the Past chronicles Vince’s efforts to find gigs, save vintage arrangements from the dumpster, catalog his 60,000 scores, and pick up side sessions to pay the rent. The filmmakers will present scenes from the film.
Q&A filmmakers Dave Davidson and Amber Edwards of Hudson West Productions, and bandleader Vince Giordano
