Come Swing with the Band
Come Swing with the Band

Take a sentimental journey with the Rancho Cordova River City Concert Band on Saturday, June 14th as they host a fundraising concert and dance at the Marriott Hotel in Rancho Cordova.

“Those Were the Days” features great “big band” sounds playing tunes including “Sentimental Journey,” “In the Mood,” “Tuxedo Junction,” and more.

If the sound of those great standards doesn’t get you on your feet, the instructors on hand to perform dance demonstrations and teach dance steps surely will.

The fun starts at 6 p.m. and continues until 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th at the Marriott’s Grand Ballroom, 11211 Point East Drive.  Tickets are $20 each, and include hors d’oeuvres, Starbucks coffee, dessert pairings and wine tasting by R. Merlo Winery, and beer tasting by the American River Brewing Company of Rancho Cordova.  No-host cocktails will also be available. 

The dance and concert begins at 7 p.m. Featured performers include the Rancho Cordova River City Concert Band and the RC Swing Band, the newest addition to the local musical line-up.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Rancho Cordova River City Concert Band activities in the community, and will help prepare the band to host the 2105 Association of Concert Bands National Convention in April 2015.

The band is also hoping to establish a scholarship fund for graduating music students from the Folsom Cordova Unified School District.
