8th Annual New Year's Eve Gala with
This year we are moving to the newly renovated Westin LaPaloma. All the features you’ve come to enjoy will be available again this year including a fabulous dinner (view menu), three great shows and a midnight champagne toast. Our lineup for that wonderful night will feature The Tucson Jazz Orchestra reunited under the direction of Jeff Haskell, The Jim Cullum Jazz Band, stars of “Riverwalk Jazz” on NPR and XM, and George Howard’s Motown and Rhythm & Blues Show.
Organized in 1962, The Jim Cullum Band is renowned worldwide for playing the classic jazz associated with King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Bix Beiderbecke –among others–plus music by great American composers such as Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin. The band has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap Farm, Austin City Limits, and at festivals and concerts across the U.S. and Latin America. The JCJB has also performed in Australia, Europe and on a wildly successful tour of Russia! From 1963 until 2011 the band performed at The Landing, on San Antonio’s Riverwalk.
The musicians are full-time professionals, with extensive backgrounds in traditional jazz, swing and other vintage musical styles. Since 1987, Riverwalk Jazz radio broadcasts have featured the Jim Cullum Jazz Band with distinguished musical guests. The Pacific Vista Production is heard worldwide on Public Radio
