Holiday Swing Dance 



The Keene Jazz Orchestra invites you to celebrate the holidays with the classic sounds of an authentic big band swing dance.  Fronting the band this winter is dynamic vocalist Becca Wilber, presenting an evening of traditional Big Band Swing of the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s including the music of Count Basie, Glenn Miller, and Benny Goodman as well as a variety of fun and swinging holiday hits.  
 
Founded by Scott Mullett, the Keene Jazz Orchestra's mission is to perform, propagate, and provide education for American Big Band music.  The 17 piece band is comprised of the Monadnock region's finest instrumentalists, educators, and students, and boasts a résumé of performances and collaborations with some of the greatest living performers and repertoire in big band music. KJO operates under the musical direction of founding member and bassist Steve Cady, who directs Jazz Ensembles at Keene State College, acts as Performing Arts Chair at Vermont Academy, and performs and teaches regionally as a bassist and music educator. 
 
Music fans of all ages are welcome to dance and be merry in the company of a live Swing Orchestra. Bar service is available. 

Tickets are $15 adults/$12 students and are on sale at Toadstool Bookstore & Prime Roast in Keene NH as well as online at keenejazzorchestra.org starting on Dec 1, 2019.
