|Band hosts autumn dance|
The Louisiana Big Band will continue its dance and fundraiser series with a fall event, "Swing Into Autumn," 7-10 p.m. Saturday, Oct.17 at the West Monroe Convention Center.
The area band will bring the music of the 40s and 50s. The dance will be a tribute and memorial to one of its own, Ralph Pierce, from Farmerville, a trombonist with the band since its inception.
Pierce was an instructor at Louisiana Tech and was a member of the famous Tech Deboniers in Ruston.
Brian Lassiter leads a group of 15 to 17 men and women who travel from El Dorado, Ark., Shreveport, Ruston, Winnsboro, Farmerville, West Monroe and Monroe.
"The dance and fundraiser proceeds will be used to keep Big Band music alive and kicking in Northeast Louisiana," Lassiter said. "We play for the appreciation of the music and want to share and pass it along to other lovers of the sound and public, who want to dance or listen to the music of Glen Miller, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Les Brown, and the rest."
The Louisiana Big Band is a non0profit organization.
A cash bar and snack bar will be available and plenty of parking and security will be provided.
Sponsors for this fundraiser are Angel Ministries, Hyperbaric Solutions, Cooley Printing and Specialties, and "Get Noticed, Call Judy," publicity consultant.
Tickets are available at Zeagler's Music on 18th Street in Monroe or at the West Monroe Convention Center office.
Advanced tickets are $12.50 or $25 for a couple. On Oct. 17, the price will be $15 each.
To reserve a table for eight or to order tickets by mail, contact Judy Wilson, Louisiana Big Band publicist, at 342-8807 or 235-6595 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
