The Third Annual Big Band Bash will take place at the Vernon Recreation Centre Auditorium on June 15th from 3:00 to 10:00pm
The recent popularity of ballroom-style dancing has brought a resurgence of Big Band dance music from the 30’s and 40’s. The opportunity to showcase your Lindy Hop and Jive, Waltz, Foxtrot and Latin dance skills is coming to Vernon in one, giant, Big Band extravaganza! Come “Cut a Rug!” or just sit back and enjoy the sounds. Be part of the fun and excitement of the music in the style of Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey and more.
The annual “Big Band Bash”, hosted by Vernon’s very own Okanagan Valley Big Band, will feature Beyond Brass from Kamloops, Dreamland Band, Lake Country Big Band, South Okanagan Big Band, and the Thursday Night Big Band from the Okanagan.
There will be a concession, run by the Kalamalka Secondary School Music Department, serving soup & salad, chili & a bun, and other meals from 4:00 until 7:00pm, and snacks, soft drinks, juice and water for the whole event.
There will also be a cash bar, run by the Vernon Jazz Club, serving beer, wine and coolers.
Proceeds will go to support the Vernon Jazz Club and the Kalamalka Secondary School Music Department.
Big Band Bash!
