8-Bit Big Band @ Boston’s Berklee Performance Center: The 8-Bit Big Band returns to Boston’s Berklee Performance Center on March 1. This highly acclaimed 33-piece ensemble is directed by Charlie Rosen and presents the bandleader’s original arrangements of some of the world’s most popular video game music. “The crowd reaction when we play our versions of themes from favorites such as Mario, Tetris and Legend of Zelda is overwhelming, not just because it’s amazing music on its own but also because of the strong memories and nostalgia evoked in an audience that played these games throughout childhood,” explains Rosen.
