Fall Harvest Festival of Bands & Charity Event

    Sunday Nov 19, 1-6:30 pm at the Makoy Center

Ray Heitger's Cakewalkin' Jass Band - Cincy River Rats - OSU Trad & Swing Combo

How time flies - when you're having fun! As the holidays approach, so we come again to our Fall Harvest of Bands and Charity Event! Please bring non-perishable foodstuffs which we'll deliver to a local food pantry.

Come enjoy 3 great bands, each with a different perspective on our favorite music:
Ray Heitger's Cakewalkin' Jass Band needs little introduction anywhere - they're among the best and the best-loved bands in the territory, bringing lifetimes of experience.
► The Cincy River Rats are a new generation of extraordinary talent, including several grad's of the highly respected Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. They have a fresh ear, enthusiasm and touch for this wonderful music.
► And the OSU Swing & Trad Combo brings us the chance to hear some very capable young musicians at an early stage, and in the jam session to hear what happens when ALL these generations of musicians meet to share the songs of our shared American musical heritage.

The Makoy Center has perhaps the largest and nicest dance floor in the area. Light food (pizza, burgers, etc) and snacks for purchase, and has a full cash bar.
Map it: 5462 N Center St, Hilliard OH 43026
