Last year we went "Back in Time." We didn't go far enough. This year, join us as we journey to the Jazz Age at FUSION:Bangor's annual Extravaganza!
The Roaring Twenties. The Jazz Age. It was a period of wild economic prosperity, cultural flowering and a shaking up of social mores. Prohibition and speakeasies, flappers and follies.
Ladies, get your hair bobbed and put on those flapper dresses. Gentlemen, don those snappy hats and saddle shoes. With live music echoing Gershwin and Louis Armstrong, you'll be dancing to the talented melodies of the Aurora Jazz Project as Master of Ceremonies Zach "Babyface" Robbins guarantees your entertainment. Following a spectacular yet short FUSION Awards presentation, the social evening continues full of gin, dancing and the era-spanning beats of DJ KTF.
Everyone is encouraged to wear period costume for our grand affair. More info will be coming soon to help you find the perfect outfit for the evening.
The Extravaganza will begin with a cocktail hour with music by the Aurora Jazz Project, hors d’oeuvres and a gin station featuring Maine’s own Back River Gin from Sweetgrass Farm Winery & Distillery in Union. Next, a short awards ceremony that will recognize businesses and community leaders who have made impacts pertinent to FUSION’s mission, which is to connect young residents to each other and the community. Following the awards ceremony will be dancing and entertainment from DJ KTF. FUSION aims to keep the awards portion meaningful, yet brief, so that community members can enjoy a night out at a fun event.
Tickets for the Extravaganza are $35 and include a signature gin cocktail for those 21 years of age and older. Tickets can be purchased online at fusionextravaganza.eventbrite.com or by calling the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce at 947-0307.
FUSION:Bangor appreciates your support as the proceeds from this event help the organization to continue providing programs to help connect our community.
