Jazz orchestra to celebrate Big Dig Feb. 8


Music and theater arts lecturer Mark Harvey and his Aardvark Jazz Orchestra will celebrate the scheduled completion of the Big Dig with the premiere of Harvey's "Dig, Dug, Done," on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Regatta Bar. Celebrating the Big Dig -- which marked "substantial completion" on Jan. 31 after 14 years and an investment of more than $14 billion -- has become an Aardvark tradition. In 2004, the band played Harvey's first Central Artery composition, "Dig the Dig" (complete with hard hats, shovels and cell phones), and Harvey is keeping open the possibility of further musical tributes through 2010, just in case.
