We’re excited to announce our third annual music festival featuring Josh Duffee and his Big Band on July 7-8, 2017.  Our previous “Hot Jazz” Festivals were sizzling successes, where guests enjoyed the music of the 20’s, 30’s and the Big Band Era.  Our 2017 theme is “Sinatra!  Josh Duffee and his Big Band Play the Music of Frank Sinatra.”  There will be 15 talented musicians and a singer onstage bringing popular Sinatra favorites (and more!) to music fans of all ages.  We’ll also sponsor our free band clinic for area music students, where young aspiring musicians can learn real-life tips and techniques from the professionals.

Josh is regarded as one of the world’s greatest 1920’s style percussionists. He performs at numerous jazz festivals and concerts worldwide, and we’re lucky to get him back! Josh and his band take great pride in authentically representing 1920’s -1940’s jazz and big band era music. Josh’s reputation in the live music world enables him to bring us talented, professional musicians who have played with Doc Severinsen, Clark Terry, Mel Torme, Buddy DeFranco, Louie Bellson, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, Henry Mancini, Natalie Cole, Aretha Franklin, Wayne Newton, Randy Brecker, The Four Tops, and many more!

We greatly appreciated the enthusiastic support we received from our community in 2015 and 2016 and are looking forward to an equally successful event in 2017.   Please check back here for more information as it becomes available!
