This year, we are bringing in a FULL group for this year’s Jazz Night. Walter White and his Small, Medium@Large Big Band. They are in Grand Rapids the second week of June to perform at the International Trumpet Guild Conference and will be playing with some some of the finest trumpet players in the world! They have agreed to come to West Michigan a day early and spend some time in Spring Lake with a concert on June 12 at 7pm in the High School Auditorium.
Walter White is a native of Detroit and played in Maynard Ferguson’s band for many years along with being a finalist in the Louis Armstrong International Trumpet Competition. He recently recorded his newest CD with his band entitled “Breaking Good” (some of you will get the joke in the title…) If you want to read more about Walter White and his band, check out: http://walterwhite.brassjarmusic.com
Tickets are $10 for Adults, $5 for students and seniors and FREE for all Spring Lake Students with ID and children under 12. They are available from any High School or Middle School Jazz Band Student or in the HS or MS offices.
