APRIL 26 - Swing in the Spring!


Since 1999, the Lakes Area Swing Band has been dedicated to the preservation of Big Band music, and providing scholarships to music students.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, this all-volunteer group raises money through their performances and donations to provide scholarships for music students in grades 7–12 seeking financial assistance for attending band camp, private lessons, other music schools or college music program.

Thanks for visiting, and please feel free to contact us for any additional information, including booking the band, making donations, our scholarships; or even playing with the band. Keep on swingin'!

The Lakes Area Swing Band and the Wauconda High School jazz band will each perform, followed by both playing together! Don't miss this opportunity to support great swing band music while encouraging these high schoolers in their study and pursuit of the jazz genre of music!

This is a free event and will take place in the Wauconda High School auditorium. No advance tickets are required for this event. Music will run from 7pm until 9pm.
