August Second Sunday Jazz Affair with After Midnig...

Presented by Pikes Peak Jazz And Swing Society at Olympian Plaza Reception Center

After Midnight, a Benny Goodman Sextet, is widely regarded as the best small jazz group of all time. Their sound and style is modeled after that remarkable band but with a sophisticated and modern vibe and the hard driving swing is refreshing and infectious, inspiring dancers and bringing toe-tapping joy to listeners of all ages. This music is incredibly difficult to play and they enjoy making it look and sound effortless. The repertoire incorporates music from Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Lionel Hampton to Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennett.

There will also be dancing, door prizes, a cash bar plus a full buffet and dessert bar available for purchase.
