The fourth annual Father's Day Big Band Dance starring Dennis Rowland and the Extreme Decibel Big Band will be held in The Scottsdale Plaza Resort Grand Ballroom on Sunday, June 17, from 3 to 7 p.m. The dance is a fundraiser to support the youth jazz education programs of Jazz in AZ and The Nash, the new nonprofit education and performance center of Jazz in AZ in downtown Phoenix. Once again, the dance is being held in honor of John Dawson for his continued generous support of jazz.
Former Count Basie vocalist Dennis Rowland will front Clark Krueger's Extreme Decibel Big Band, performing a classic dance repertoire and familiar songs made popular by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.
A fun swing-dance lesson, courtesy of Steve Conrad and the Lindy Hop Society, will kick off the event.
