December Musical Guest: Midnight Rose Jazz Band

Next Event: December 18

Midnight Rose 2013Exciting-hilarious-energetic-spontaneous-entertaining-these words and more have been used to describe the Midnight Rose Jazz Band, one of the best loved traditional jazz bands today. This band has a unique combination of qualities and personalities that captivates audiences wherever they go. For nearly 25 years, the Midnight Rose Jazz Band has been winning fans and bringing their own special brand of fun and entertaining music to jazz festivals and clubs all up and down the west coast. As leader Dannie Balser-Singinghawk puts it, “We have always tried to play high quality music, but equally important to us is having fun and we work hard to make sure that our audiences do also, to leave our performances with a happier heart and a lighter step. We have never tried to sound like any particular band or ‘style’. We are well rehearsed, but our arrangements are loose enough to allow for spontaneity…. and, of course, fun!”
