Band Jam will rock the house at SWAC July 26
Marching band showcase will present the talent of many West Seattle students
A free community event, “Band Jam” will showcase the marching bands participating in the Seafair Torchlight Parade July 26 at the Southwest Athletic Complex (SWAC) at 2600 SW Thistle Street. The event will run from 7pm to 8:30pm. The doors will open at 6pm.
All City Band is a summer marching band program for high school students sponsored by Seattle Public Schools. The ACB is marching in the West Seattle parade this weekend as well.
The Director of ACB is Marcus Pimpleton, also the music director for Chief Sealth HS and Denny MS. Of the 138 participating students this year, 62 of them are students at West Seattle HS and Chief Sealth HS.
Traditionally ACB rehearses (and holds Band Jam) at Memorial Stadium. Because of the remodeling and construction at Memorial Stadium this summer, rehearsals (3 nights a week) are being held at the SWAC . Band Jam will also be held at SWAC. The event is free, and concessions will be sold.
