'Evening of Romance' offers a big band valentine on Feb. 14
Wednesday, December 17, 2008
Tickets go on sale Jan. 5, 2009, for the Purdue Jazz Band’s ninth annual “Evening of Romance” which will celebrate Valentine’s Day on Saturday, Feb. 14, 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. 14, 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.
