The Orange Wave Band needs your help. Next Saturday, February 22nd, is our first ever Swing Spectacular fundraiser. We have two amazing jazz bands and some really great friends who are competitive swing dancers, and we figured it would be a great way to celebrate the wonderful American art forms of jazz music and swing dancing. Doors open at 6:30 PM at the Rockwall High School Cafetorium. We have heavy hor d’oeuvres from Ruby Tuesday, free swing dance lessons, a live DJ, and the best live, big band jazz and swing music this side of the Village Vanguard in New York City, all of this for just $20 per person in advance. Tickets at the door will be $25 and six person tables are available for $150. Businesses or families who choose to reserve a table for six for $150 will be advertised with a sign at the table and recognition in our program.
In truth, our advance ticket sales have been less than expected, so we are extending our deadline through this week. You can help. The Swing Spectacular will be a fun event. Adults and students are all welcome. Many business have donated items for our silent auction, and I am certain that you don’t want to miss out on this evening of great food, music, dancing, and most of all, fun. The money we raise will go to support the entire band program at Rockwall High School. In this day of tight budgets and rising costs, the burden of keeping the music alive in our schools and community falls on us. You can purchase your tickets from any band student or online at RockwallBandBooster.com. Come one and all to the first-ever Swing Spectacular.
