Rancho Santa Fe Big Band returns to Holiday Swing Concert


Rancho Santa Fe Big Band returns to the Ranch on Sunday evening, Dec. 12, at the Village Church (6225 Paseo Delicias) from 6-8:30 p.m. “Thanks to the generosity of the church”, Marie Addario, vocalist and band events coordinator says, “we were able to slash our prices and offer the same quality performance and venue for our 11th. holiday concert.”

This 17-piece swing orchestra under the direction of professor and former president of the San Diego Musicians’ Association Jack Wheaton, with producer and trumpeter Dominick Addario, hire the finest players of big band era music to present a nostalgic evening of great swing jazz and holiday favorites. This indoor pops-like (bring your own wine and appetizers) concert/dance, celebrates its 11th year with sold out performances during the holiday season. The non-profit swing orchestra provides decorations, munchies, glasses and wine openers, table linens and of course the multi-talented musicians who hail from LA, Orange and San Diego Counties. Many of the musicians have played with the bands of the ’30s and ’40s and Jack Wheaton never misses a chance to recall a good story or funny memory between arrangements.

“Hold your holiday party at our party,” Addario says, “many people do.” We’ve seen people bring their out-of-town guests, families, parents, office parties, and friends and neighbors who want to share a table and enjoy this evening of this all-American art form.”

Tables of 10 may be reserved by calling Addario at 858-756-4542. For more information log on to RSF Big Band’s web site: Tickets are $40 per person or $400 per table of 10. Individual tickets may be purchased at the Association office beginning Nov. 1. Swing Swing Swing into the holidays at the Rancho Santa Fe Big Band Party.
