VIDEO: West Seattle Big Band’s holiday concert fills Admiral Church with musical cheer

It was a full house – more than 100 people of all ages, babies through seniors – when the West Seattle Big Band presented a holiday concert this afternoon at Admiral Church. We recorded three of the Christmas songs for you – first, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”:

Here’s “The Christmas Song”

And “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”:

(Jim Edwards directs the WSBB; Jenaige Lane and Greg Dirks were the vocalists in our clips; Bud Jackson sang later.) The rest of the program included some non-holiday selections too. The band, which spends much of its year donating its time to raise money for school music programs, donated this appearance too so the church could raise money (admission was free but a basket was passed) for its music program.

Watch for more public WSBB performances next year – their calendar is at, along with history on this quarter-century-and-going-strong group!

    We are so fortunate to have such a talented group not only in our community but sharing their talent to build community through generous performances like to one at Admiral UCC today. Thank you to Jim and crew for a wonderful show, I’m still singing!

Sorry, comment time is over.
