Video: Music for & by all ages, @ Big Band Dinner Dance

Our video features the Denny International Middle School Jazz Band, the first of three student groups directed by Marcus Pimpleton that performed Saturday night for the Big Band Dinner Dance; the two others were from adjacent Chief Sealth International High School – here’s the Jazz 1 group:

Last night’s benefit combined what had been the Denny Jazz Dinner and the Sealth Big Band Dinner Dance, in this first year of the two schools sharing a campus (they had already been sharing a “pathway“). The above photo and the next one are courtesy of Denny principal Jeff Clark, who also shared these words:

Congratulations to Denny and Sealth Jazz musicians on an outstanding night of music. The dance floor has filled as guests are dancing to the sweet sound of jazz. Thank you to our amazing volunteers, families, and staff for making this event possible. A special thank to the West Seattle Big Band for joining us!

The WSBB has long supported student music programs.

    Thanks to everyone who made it out to the 2012 Big Band Dinner Dance. It was wonderful to see so many families out to to enjoy the food, music, and dancing. The event brought in just over $5800 in ticket sales with another $4000.00 raised by our booster group from the dessert dash. The West Seattle Big Band made a generous donation of $1000.00, so after our expenses it means $8000.00 was raised to support our jazz programs from Denny and Sealth. Special shout out to Karla Boyd who coordinated most of the event logistics and the many parents who assisted with set up and tear down. Please mark your calendar for next year’s event – March 30, 2013.

Sorry, comment time is over.
