Next Dance is Thursday, December 5, at the Yachats Commons

Grab your dancing shoes or come as you are, to join us as we play the music of your life at our monthly community concert/dance. We play the first Thursday of the every month from 7:00-9:00 PM in a smoke and alcohol free environment at the Yachats Commons, 441 Hwy 101 N, Yachats, OR 97498.  This summer we are adding two dances to our regular schedule: July 20 and August 24, both Saturdays, both at the Commons and both starting at 7 PM.

Couples, families and singles are invited to dance to the Big Band Classics of Glen Miller, Count Basie, Duke Ellington and others or just come listen and enjoy an evening of great entertainment. The Yachats Big Band is a non-profit group dedicated to preserving swing era music. A donation of $5.00 for adults is appreciated and FREE for children under 12.

The Yachats Big Band was formed by Bill Bryner in 1992 with the members coming from all walks of life, but all sharing a common interest in big band music. There’s a wealth of experience in this band as the membership includes band directors, music teachers, college professors, a marine biologist, local business people, and retired professional musicians. They all have one thing in common, they’ve all spent many years learning their craft and truly enjoy getting together to play with the band, whether its for a rehearsal or a performance.
