Dance Crew performing “Sing, Sing, Sing”

Saturday, March 8 the Jazz Band and Dance Crew packed up the bus and headed downtown to set up, sound-check, and perform at this year’s Gala. Jazz Combos played eleven pieces during the opening reception and the full Jazz Band drew the revellers into the ballroom to the strains for two sets of Big Band Swing. Taro Hyodo wowed the audience as he sang Zoot Suit Riot and Every Day I Have the Blues. The climax of the performance featured the ASIJ Dance Crew with the full band in Sing, Sing, Sing.
