Local dance band, The SwingSationS, in need of players

Wanted, adrummer and a piano player in order to be able to perform for the upcoming season

Trail’s 18-piece Glenn Miller-style big-band is very much in need of a drummer and a piano player in order to be able to perform for the upcoming season.

The band is very popular and well known for their ballroom-style dances held four times yearly at the KP Hall.

These dances provide a wide variety of dance styles including swing, rock, waltzes, polkas, rumbas, tangos, cha chas and sambas.

The band is primarily made up of amateurs, so there are no expectations that potential new members be pros. All that is expected is that all members give their best towards the betterment of the group. Since it is necessary for a band of this size to always perform from written music, it is important that all potential members, like present members, be able to read music well and be willing to attend the band’s rehearsals from late September to mid-May. These rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Legion Hall in Trail.

Interested persons wanting further information are asked to call Clark White at (250) 367-6115.
