JazzMN Orchestra At The Dakota


Sign in to view read count
A rare club performance comes to the Dakota to benefit JazzMN’s educational outreach program.

JazzMN patrons have long desired to hear the band outside the concert hall. The Dakota’s intimate setting, the searing band let loose, and Connie Evingson’s fabulous vocal stylings will sate that desire. This atmosphere offers more room for soloists such as Dave Karr, Pete Whitman, Kathy Jensen, Dave Jensen and Dave Graf to play while Joe Pulice drives the band. As an added bonus, the first 100 tickets sold will receive a special JazzMN Orchestra token of appreciation the night of the event.

JazzMN’s educational outreach program is central to JazzMN’s mission to promote the jazz art form. The program fosters opportunities for students to learn and experience jazz through sponsored clinics, master classes, and playing alongside our professional artists. This exposure may lead to a future in the arts, or simply forge a lifelong appreciation of jazz.

Music begins at 7 pm, but guests are encouraged to arrive at 6 pm to enjoy the Dakota’s award-winning menu, which will feature a JazzMN special dinner creation for the evening.

Tickets are $50 per person (dinner not included) and are available through the Dakota box office. You can also choose your seating at that time.
