A major mission of the West Seattle Big Band is to support music programs in local schools, and once again this school year, its musicians have performed on the same bills as local middle- and high-school groups. Another one’s coming up in less than two weeks, as announced:
BIG BAND DINNER DANCE MARCH 22! Denny-Sealth Performing Arts presents an evening of great food and dancing to the sounds of the Denny International Middle School Jazz Band, the Chief Sealth International High School Jazz Band, and the West Seattle Big Band!
Dinner features Otis Pimpleton’s Louisiana-style BBQ chicken with baked beans, potato salad, and mixed vegetables; a vegetarian lasagna option is available upon request. A dessert dash will be included as part of the event which takes place in the Chief Sealth Galleria from 6-10 pm. Tickets are $25 for dinner and dancing and must be purchased in advance. A limited number of dance-only tickets will be available at the door after 7:30 for students with ID. All proceeds benefit the Denny and Sealth jazz bands.
Tickets are available online – just go here.
