Hot Java Cool Jazz on March 25

Roosevelt’s Jazz Band 1 has been invited again this year to perform in Starbuck’s Hot Java Cool Jazz program on Friday March 25 at the Paramount Theater. Each participating band is given the opportunity to sell a limited number of tickets to this event, and all proceeds from the sales of those tickets go directly to that school’s program. This event is an opportunity for us to raise over $6300! In addition, the first school to sell out their portion of the tickets earns a $500 gift certificate to Kennelly Keys. So we are eager to sell out our allotment of tickets as soon as possible!

Remember, if your student is in JB1 they will need to purchase a ticket if they would like to sit in the theater to listen to the other schools perform. Otherwise, the Paramount requires them to stay backstage when not performing.

This year we will be selling our school’s portion of the tickets ONLY online. You can purchase your tickets for $23 via this link.

You will receive your tickets in the mail within the next month.

We expect that, as in year’s past, this performance will sell out early, so buy your tickets online right away! They are already selling fast!

Thanks for your continued support of Roosevelt Jazz!
