Hot Java Cool Jazz 2018

On Friday, March 30th, Roosevelt’s Jazz Band I will perform at Hot Java Cool Jazz.  Purchase your tickets now from Roosevelt Jazz Boosters.  This annual event, sponsored by Starbucks, is a terrific opportunity to see the top Seattle-area high school jazz bands perform. It’s also a huge fundraiser for our program, thanks to Starbucks’ generous donation of all proceeds from ticket sales to the five selected schools. We hope to see you there!

The show takes place downtown at the Paramount Theater; doors will open at 6pm for this 7pm show.

RHS Jazz Wins at Reno and Bellevue

35th Annual Bellevue Jazz Festival

We had a great time at this annual festival hosted by Bellevue High School.  Jazz Bands III and IV came in 1st and 2nd  in their division, and Jazz Band II took 2nd place in the 3A division.  To play well and be recognized is a great thing and the result of a lot of hard work.   Congratulations!
