Sequim High School jazz band, Stardust Big Band reunite for dinner-dance event

The Sequim High School Band Boosters host their annual Jazz Dinner Dance on Saturday, Jan. 13, with SHS jazz members joining featured guest Stardust Big Band for a night of dining and music

Held at the SHS cafeteria at 601 N. Sequim Ave., the event sees doors open at 6 p.m. and music kicking off at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple and are available in Sequim at First Federal Sequim Avenue branch, Full Moon Candle Co. and Cracked Bean Coffee.

The Stardust Big Band has delighted local audiences for the past 20 years. They play beloved classics from swing era luminaries Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Bennie Goodman, Artie Shaw, Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Woody Herman, as well as contemporary artists.

The Sequim High School Jazz band is a select, audition-based band led by director Vern Fosket.

“This is one of our favorite events of the year. It’s a great evening out with dinner and a show at an affordable price,” says Sara Benjamin, President of the Band Boosters Club.

“Money raised by this event will help us pay for desperately needed new uniforms.”

Band supporters are raising money for new marching band uniforms. SHS’s current uniforms have been in use for 15 years with repeated alterations and cleanings. New uniforms will cost about $15,000, boosters say.
