Penn's Landing in Philadelphia
Mike credits Woody Herman for his big band interest.
When the Penn's Landing Corporation wants to throw a party to entertain the local community and international visitors to the historic city of Philadelphia, they call MIKE TROMBETTA'S METROPOLIS BIG BAND. For two hours on a sunny afternoon on the waterfront at Chestnut Street we served as ambassadors of music. Stay tuned!
Ed Sullivan and Woody Herman
As a young boy, Mike Trombetta saw Woody Herman on television performing on the Ed Sullivan Show which influenced him to start a life of music. Mike Trombetta was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA where Woody recruited an abundance of talented saxophone players like Buddy Savitt, Bob Newman, Gregory Herbert, Stan Getz and Larry McKenna. Mike studied with Vince Trombetta (no relation), then with Larry McKenna, now the featured soloist with Mike Trombetta's Metropolis Big Band. At the advice of good friend, jazz saxophonist and woodwind expert Bob Malach, Mike sought out Bob Newman in the Poconos for lessons in the late 70's. In 1980, Bob Newman asked Mike to be his roommate in the new casino frontier of Atlantic City and their friendship continues to this day. Lately Mike has been fine-tuning his saxophone technique with George Young and vocal studies with Rod MacWherter.
