SOLD OUT - Enjoy big band music, dancing, and nostalgia when the Tower Theatre Foundation presents the Notables Swing Band, complete with 1940's newsreels, cartoons, and a boxed dinner all in celebrating Veterans Day.
VETERANS DAY PARTY AT THE TOWER
It’s an evening of big band music, dancing, and nostalgia when the Tower Theatre Foundation presents the Notables Swing Band in a concert celebrating Veteran’s Day. The band is made up of nearly two dozen local musicians and singers, and led by Marvin Thomas. The Tower event, starting at 6:30 pm, will feature a dance floor and several swing dancers. Plus, attendees are encouraged to show-off their own Jitterbugs and Lindy Hops!
Doors to the theatre open at 5:30 pm for a pre-show “picnic.” Patrons will enjoy vintage 1940 newsreels and cartoons on the Tower’s big screen as they snack from individual catered box dinners with drinks (for an extra charge).
Additional proceeds from the evening will benefit Caring for Troops and Bend Band of Brothers, two local veterans’ support organizations.

The Notables Swing Band is led by Marvin Thomas on trumpet, supported by members who love playing the classic swing music popularized by musicians such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Count Basie. In that tradition, we have 17 members in order to make that characteristic full sound of a big band by offering the standard instrumentation of the early bands. We are a spin-off of the 75-member Cascade Horizon Band, well known for the many concerts it plays in Bend and nearby communities. Read more...
