Some people arrive around 6:30 to help unload and get our equipment out of the way before dinner starts at 7:30. Wear black and white with jackets and the band's blue ties and cummerbunds.

Songs in bold were first performed by the band at this dance. Songs crossed out (like this) were skipped due to lack of time. Songs in red are available on the Roseville Big Band Concert in the Park CD and cassette tape.
