Happy almost Valentines day! It was truly one of the band’s greatest performances at the Children Center’s Gala—with a crowd of over 400 to inspire the band even more. It was a great cause with great people and the band hit not just a home run, but a Grand Slam (You will soon learn that I am a BIG baseball fan too!).
That being said, we’re excited for our next gig: “Frosted: A Big Band Valentine Ball.” For ticket information, check out the Facebook page of Cosmopolitan Event Center Downtown Joplin here. Dinner starts around 7:00pm with our combo playing from 7:40-8:20 and then the Big Band at 8:30.
We’re also pleased to announce that we’ll have some special guests with us for this event—fine jazz trombonist and Professor from MSSU, Phil Wise, who will be performing with both groups. Also joining our rhythm section on Bass is my former student and Carthage band director, Garry Greek.
Looking for a beautiful venue, no hassle fighting the crowds,and AWESOME entertainment to boot? Then I hope to see you at the Cosmopolitan Event Center Downtown Joplin on February 15th!
Keep swingin’ – Bill
