Dave Altschuler Big Band with guest vocals Sheilani Alix

Do you like big band music? Do you like to dance? Come join us on Memorial Day for some big band fun in Alameda. The last Monday of each month, the Dave Altschuler Big Band hosts a monthly dance concert in the social hall at Temple Israel in Alameda (Bay Farm). I’ll be filling in for Janese Powell who is their regular (and extremely talented!) singer. Singing with these guys is always a special and rare treat for me so hope you can make it. Bring yourself and a dance partner (and some libations, if you like!) and get ready to be transported to days when Ford Model T’s were $260, Prohibition was alive and well and jazz had every “youngster” doing the Charleston, the cake walk, the black bottom and the flea hop.
