Capital City Celebrations and the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council will co-sponsor the "Starry Night Swing" musical event as part of the Alaska 50th Statehood festivities following Gallery Walk on Friday, Dec. 5.
The Thunder Mountain Big Band, led by trumpeter Ron Maas, will perform from 8 to 10 p.m. at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center. The band is composed of 18 musicians, including clarinet, sax, trumpet, trombone, percussion, string bass and piano. The group, which has been together for at least 10 years, plays a wide range of Big Band favorites, including swing, jazz, Latin and waltzes. Vicki Van Fleet is the featured vocalist.
Admission for the concert is $10 for adults, and $5 for student and seniors. The Rendezvous will have a no-host bar. Those under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tickets will be available at the door or at www.jahc.org, and proceeds will support the Juneau Arts & Culture Center.
Capital City Celebrations will also be selling 50th Statehood medallions, posters, pins, and wine glasses just in time for the holidays.
