The Busy Band Buzz: Jazz Success

Thank you to everyone in the community for coming out for our first Jazz In The Park event. Despite the cold, rainy weather leading up to our event, we had a good crowd turn out to hear some good music and enjoy some tasty food.

Thanks to the generosity of our band supporters in the community and our band parents, this afternoon event raised approximately $1,700 for our uniform fund. That is enough to purchase four or five new uniforms.

Every event like this that the community shows its support adds up to make our goal of $60,000 attainable.

A special thank you to Mr. Weinberg and the Middle School Jazz Band…after all, these uniforms are for you! Also a huge thank you to K-Fex Inc. for donating the port-a-johns for the afternoon, and Smitty’s Smoking Barbecue for helping us out with the pulled pork. We would also like to thank our special guest Dock By The Dock for closing out the show for us.

New Prairie Bands look forward to making this an annual event to share their love of music with the community. THANK YOU!
