Come SWING in the New Year with KRNN and Juneau Jazz and Classics.
KRNN is proud to sponsor a very special New Year’s Eve celebration. Juneau Jazz & Classics and the Maas Family present Swing in the New Year! at the JACC. Featuring the Thunder Mountain Big Band, guest artists Ingrid Jensen and Jon Wikan, and vocalist Vicki Van Fleet.
Great dance music, hors d’oeuvres, and a champagne toast promise a great new year’s eve celebration—and benefit for the 2012 festival. Get your tickets now, or swing by the JACC, Hearthside, or Rainy Retreat books.
