'Evening of Romance' offers a big band valentine on Feb. 15
Saturday, February 2, 2008
Tickets are on sale for the Purdue Jazz Band’s eighth annual “Evening of Romance” which will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Friday, Feb. 15, at University Plaza (formerly University Inn) in West Lafayette.
The cabaret-style event, which recreates the atmosphere of big band dance clubs of the 1940s - where couples came to enjoy music, dancing, food and each other’s company - offers seating at candlelit tables surrounding the dance floor.
The Purdue Jazz Band starts playing at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, in the hotel’s grand ballroom. The event runs to approximately 10:30 p.m. At intermission a dessert buffet will be offered and a jazz combo will perform on the hotel mezzanine. Gourmet coffees and a cash bar complete the romantic experience.
Directed by M.T. “Mo” Trout, the Purdue Jazz Band will set the mood for the evening by performing a selection of romantic jazz tunes for listening and dancing.
All seats are reserved. Tables accommodate either four or eight. Couples and individuals wishing to sit together as a group need to make reservations at the same time. Guests can select their table location at the time of purchase. Tickets are $19.50 per person which includes the dessert buffet. Tickets are only on sale through the Purdue box office; call (765) 494-4933 or (800) 914-SHOW. A sell-out is anticipated so make reservations early. If last-minute tickets become available, they will be sold at the door.
