The Los Alamos Big Band is offering an event to be marked on people’s social calendars.For the ninth straight year, there will be a Big Band Dance at 7:30-10:30 p.m. Thursday at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Hall. Music will feature the Los Alamos Big Band with two vocalists. The special guest soloist will be Michelle Trieste who is visiting Los Alamos from Denver. In addition, Paula Ward will also sing. The Los Alamos Big Band has been playing at dances throughout northern New Mexico since 1984 under the direction of Jan MacDonald, who for many years was the bandleader at Los Alamos High School. The band features the danceable music of the Big Band Era such as “In The Mood”, “String of Pearls”, “Sing, Sing, Sing” and “Moonlight Serenade.” They also play other danceable music such as “Moon River,” Latin numbers like “Besame Mucho” and even “Rock Around the Clock.”Trieste brings a wealth of experience to the group. She began performing on stage at age 5. She has a strong background in musical theater and has performed professionally in Denver and Kansas City.
