Chuck Easton is conducting the Northwest Big Band in a special concert this evening at Warm Beach (near Stanwood). If any of you are in the area, I know he’d love to have you come by to hear them perform. Chuck has been working with ensembles and the band during the past week. He’s looking forward to playing his harmonica on The Nearness of You!
Chuck has worked with the participants at the NW Big Band workshop in Pt. Townsend every spring for many years. Barry and Kate Erb Barry-Kate Erb are now operating the new nonprofit, and it has been moved to Warm Beach. Our best wishes to you, Barry and Kate- we know you have put an enormous amount of work into this special week of music. Chuck says the location is lovely and very comfortable, with views of the Stillaguamish Delta. He has enjoyed running the trails down to the beach in the mornings.
