Jazz in Progress - Swingin' the Bandshell

Jazz in Progress will perform a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, August 30th at the Dee Palmer Band Shell in Hopkins Park, 1407 Sycamore Rd., DeKalb, IL

Celebrating 10 years of making music together, the 18-piece community jazz band will play a variety of music including classic jazz standards, Swing-era, funk from the 1960s and ‘70s, as well as other favorites. The band will also feature a number of vocal and instrumental soloists from within the members of the ensemble.

Jazz in Progress was formed for musical, charitable, and educational purposes to support its mission to advance the appreciation, performance, and history of jazz music and its related genres. An official 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, they put funds raised back into local community music programs, including the DeKalb, Sycamore, Genoa-Kingston, Hinckley-Big Rock, Indian Creek, Sandwich, Somonauk, Earlville, and Leland, St. Mary’s-DeKalb school districts as well as the DeKalb County Community Foundation.
