The Chesterton High School Music Department will once again be presenting
the “Big Band Bash” dance featuring the award winning CHS Jazz Band under
the direction of Michael Scheiber on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29 and 30.
New this year is the change of venue. This year the 2010 Bash will take
place at the Banquet Center of the WaterBird Lakeside Inn, 556 Indian
Boundary Road, Chesterton.
Music and dancing will begin at 7:00 p.m. The unique idea of presenting a
nostalgic dance reminiscent of the 30’s and 40’s was conceived by the jazz
students at CHS.
The audience attending the “Big Band Bash” will dance to many of the
original arrangements of the “Big Bands” including the music of Tommy
Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Bob Crosby, Glenn Miller, Count Basie,
Les Brown, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman and others.
All seats are reserved and tickets are on sale at both the CHS Music Dept.
and at the WaterBird Lakeside Inn through Thursday, Jan. 28.
Also, new this year, the ticket price includes a pasta buffet with salad,
Italian bread and beverage. Ticket cost is $20 each OR $18 each when four
or more tickets are purchased. Tickets are available at the CHS Music
Office at Main Entrance #1 weekdays from 7:30 a.m.-Noon and from 1:00-4:00
