Did you ever think that a concert band could perform swing and jazz music? Well, Lodi’s own Community Band will be doing just that on May 31 at our annual fundraiser, to be held at the American Legion Hall, 320 N. Washington St., Lodi.

Our conductor, Art Holton, will be leading the band in a number of great old tunes from the ‘40s and ‘50s such as music of Duke Ellington, Mancini and “Satchmo” Louis Armstrong. Local musician and trumpet player Steve Colbertson will be featured in “A Tribute to Harry James” (Steve almost brings Harry back again), and Dave Olsen steps out of the clarinet section to sing an old favorite, “Someone to Watch Over Me.”

Prior to the concert there will be a delicious tri-tip dinner prepared by members of the American Legion, assisted by our local Girl Scouts.

We will again be treated to the music of Mike Esau and his In the Mood dance band for swing dancing before dinner. This will give our guests the opportunity to enjoy themselves on the dance floor again — an item that was very popular last year.

Doors will open at 4:45 p.m., dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and the “All that Jazz” concert will begin at 7:15 p.m.

Tickets for this full evening of music and a fine dinner are only $25 and are available at the American Legion Hall at 209-368-1420 or the Lodi Community Band at 209-369-4242.
