The Los Alamos Big Band is hosting a Fall Concert and Dance, 7-9 p.m. Friday Oct. 27 at Fuller Lodge. Admission is free; donations are welcome.
 
The Los Alamos Big Band is a 16-instrument 1940s Glenn Miller-style swing band that plays dance music for public events, weddings, conventions, fund raisers, and
more. The band will be playing favorites such as In The Mood; String of Pearl; Sing, Sing, Sing; New York, New York and even Clarinet Polka.
 
The band also features two well-known vocalists, Elisa Enriquez and Rene LeClaire, who will perform famous tunes such as Chicago, Fly Me to the Moon, Lady is a Tramp, and Moonglow. It even happens from time to time that one of our instrumentalists picks up the microphone for a song.
 
The band has been playing at dances throughout Northern New Mexico since 1984 under the direction of Jan McDonald, who was for many years the band director at
Los Alamos High School.
