Mile High Jazz Band will present “Big Band Jazz at Gina’s,” on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Gina’s Good Life Music & Lounge, 507 N. Carson Street inside the Carson Nugget. The music is free, donations welcome.
The 17-member band will play favorite big-band jazz tunes from its extensive repertoire and feature the vocal stylings of Jakki Ford. Pianist and band leader David Bugli said, “This is the band’s first performance at Carson’s newest hotspot, with an impressive bar, beverages, and food, and we look forward to performing there monthly. We might even leave a little room on the dance floor for dancing.”
Besides some great instrumental pieces with soloists from within the band, the band will feature Jakki Ford on several songs. She is an outstanding vocalist, professional dancer, and actor, who has appeared in several films, television shows, commercials, theater, operas, cabaret, and Las Vegas and Reno showroom spectaculars, and has recorded three albums. She will sing “Out of Nowhere,” “Just Friends,” “I’ve got You Under My Skin,” and other great songs.
After January 24, Mile High Jazz Band’s next performance at Gina’s will be on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14.
Mile High Jazz Band performances and educational activities are supported in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, and by memberships and donations.
