Expect some bopping wolverines Saturday.
Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School will be the site of a fundraiser dinner for the school’s Jazz Band 6-8 p.m., Feb. 2. In addition to dinner, the event will include performances from local musicians including Rob Cohen, Dave Hunsaker, Tom Locher, Alyssa Fischer and more.
Tickets for the event are available online through JAHC.org. They cost $20 for adults or $10 for those 13 and younger. The proceeds will go toward helping the after-school music club travel.
“It’s to bring our middle school jazz band to the Sitka Jazz Festival,” said band teacher Mike Bucy. “We have to raise money to go.”
The festival is Feb. 7-9 and features both performances and clinics, Bucy said.
The plan is for members of the after-school club to fly to Sitka and take the ferry back to Juneau. Bucy said ferry scheduling precluded taking the ferry to and from Sitka.
While tickets will be available at the door, attendees are encouraged to buy tickets ahead of time so organizers have an idea of how much food will be needed.
For those who just want to hear music and skip dinner, admission is $10 at the door.
