August 20 – Sunday, 2pm at the Amador Senior Center, 229 New York Ranch Rd, Jackson
Big Band music of the 1920’s through the 1960’s will be presented by the 11- piece Speakeazy Jazz Orchestra on August 20th at 2pm using original dance band instrumentation and sheet music. The band consists of 7 horns (saxes, clarinets, trumpets, and trombone) and 4 rhythm players (piano, banjo, bass, and drums), and features vocals from within the band. Audience may wish to sing along on most all of the familiar tunes! The Band is celebrating its 7th year of existence and now has appeared at different venues all over Northern California. We have just been asked to submit an application to the world-famous Gilroy Garlic Festival for a possible appearance on their main Amphitheater Stage next year. The band will also be performing at Ironstone Vineyard’s Concours de Elegance on late September 23 this year.
Open to all ages, there is a $5 donation request to help cover expenses of the event. There will be cookies and coffee for your enjoyment! Guests may also bring a favorite desert to share as well and there will be a small dance area left open for those that wish to shake-a-leg. Doors open at 1:30pm, don’t miss the fun!
