The Tusculum College Pioneer Jazz Band will host a Valentine’s Day Dinner/Swing Dance benefit on Tuesday, Feb. 13, at the General Morgan Inn, beginning at 6:30 p.m. The event includes dinner and a performance by the Pioneer Jazz Band, along with special guests.
The event is a fundraiser to raise money for much-needed equipment for the entire Tusculum band program, according to David A. Price, director of music at Tusculum College.
“This will be our fifth year for this event and it has proven to be a popular and enjoyable way to celebrate Valentine’s Day,” said Price. “Each year we have had tremendous feedback on the quality of the food, as well as the fun of dancing the night away to the sounds of jazz standards. This year, we are even planning some special fun to celebrate Mardi Gras as well.”
Ticket prices for the event are $55 per person or $400 for a table of eight guests. Ticket or table purchases include dance tickets, free dance lessons, an opening reception, dinner and a special dessert. Please call in advance to request a vegetarian substitution. A cash bar will be available.
In preparation for the event, dance lessons will be provided at the Chalmers Conference Center in Niswonger Commons on the Tusculum campus for two evenings by Robin Beal. Dance lesson dates are January 30 and February 6. The lessons are free to anyone that has tickets for the event. Dance lessons without event tickets are $10 per person.
Tickets are available for purchase by contacting Price at 423-636-7303 or emailing email@example.com. Special table reservations are available for larger group seating by contacting Price.
