Dear Jazz Band Members & Chaperones, I’m really looking forward to Saturday, February 8th. While this is a competitive event, please focus on just making beautiful music, supporting each other AND other groups, and having fun at the guest artist Steve Houghton performance.

Below is a finalized itinerary for the jazz festival this Saturday.  Please bring a sack lunch/dinner or money for concessions (concessions info listed below).

Chaperones – I could use a couple of chaperones to hang out and be on hand for the day. For chaperones, I will have free admission tickets for you. Please let me know if you plan on riding the bus or driving.

Visitors will need to purchase a day pass to enter the festival.  Cost is $7.00 for adults; $5.00 for students, seniors, military; and free for children 5 and under.  All of our performers and chaperones will get in for free. 

The West Salem Band Boosters will host a concession stand serving Figaro’s pizza, Subway sandwiches, hot dogs, fruit, snacks, cold beverages and coffee.

Rhythm Section – The festival will provide a piano, drum set with high-hat stand and 2 cymbal stands, bass amp, guitar amp, and vibes for each performance venue.  You will need to bring your own cymbals and cords.provided for equipment.
