Jazz Band Spreads Christmas Cheer!
On Saturday December 15th, the Banner County Jazz Band made a Christmas Tour in Scottsbluff. We began our day by rehearsing at the school and later took off and played at the Heritage Nursing Home. We performed "Hooked on Holidays" (a jazz version of O Tanenbaum), "I'll Be Home for Christmas," "St. Nick Takes the House" ( Up on the Housetop), "Silent Night," and "Feliz Navidad." After the nursing home we packed up and moved on to play at the Scottsbluff Monument Mall. After lunch, our last stop was for the Western Nebraska Veteran's Home. The students had a great time and they felt really good about bringing some Christmas joy especially to those who could not get out to go to other Christmas programs. This was the jazz band's first year to make this tour and will definitely become a yearly tradition for us.
