Serenade is April 21
It is time to get out your zoot suit, evening gown and dancing shoes in preparation for reliving the romantic era of swing music at the Moonlight Serenade Dinner Dance, a benefit for the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude.
Swing and slow dance to tunes from the likes of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, and Benny Goodman played by the 16- member Hog Heaven Big Band from Moscow, ID. They will perform music that makes everyone want to dance - One O'Clock Jump, Moonlight Serenade, Deep Purple, and Taking a Chance on Love. If you prefer, you can just sit and listen to the music, and take a stroll down your own memory lane as you relax and enjoy the ambiance of an era captured in the movies of the time.
Moonlight Serenade will be held April 21, 2007, at the Greencreek Community Hall, located six miles from Cottonwood, Idaho. The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with a no-host cocktail bar with dinner served at 6:30 p.m. The music begins at 8:00 p.m., after the tables have been rolled back to make room for the dancing.
The cost for this evening of food and dance is $25 per person. While not required, "dressing up" is encouraged. Prizes will be awarded to the best dressed man, woman and couple who reflect the styles of the 30's and 40's.
Attendance is limited to 250 people, so get your tickets early. Tickets are available in Cottonwood at The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude, Country Haus Restaurant or Arnzen's Super Drug; in Grangeville at One Hour Photo/Radio Shack; or in Kamiah at Arnzen's Kamiah Drug.
