Band Bash

Band Bash 2020 is scheduled for March 6th, 2020 at Calvary Baptist Church!

Parents– this event is not just for the kids, it is also FOR YOU!  Parents and students both get a little dressed up and come out to listen to our amazing Jazz Ensembles.  The evening begins at 7 and ends at 10 and features performances by both Lafayette Jazz Ensembles.  There are light Hors d’oeuvres/desserts and a silent auction. 

This event is strategically placed-  the perfect location to park your car, walk or shuttle to Local Taco/Joe B’s/Mellow Mushroom with the band parents you haven’t seen in months and have been missing, then come back and watch the kids have a little fun and bid on fabulous items!  Please mark your calendars now and watch e-News for updates on how to get tickets as we get closer to the event.
