The Fifth Annual Jazz Night will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2011.

The Spring Lake Bands are very excited to announce that our guest this year is the world-renowned lead trumpet player Roger Ingram! In addition to playing and touring with artists such as Woody Herman, Frank Sinatra, and Maynard Ferguson, Roger played lead trumpet for Harry Connick Jr. for 20 years! For more on Roger Ingram, check out his website www.rogeringram.com and visit www.springlakebands.org or the Facebook Event Page.

“I remember when Roger (Ingram) couldn’t make some dates a few years ago. I called Wynton (Marsalis) and asked him for some suggestions. ‘Nobody plays as high as Roger’ he said. I went through the usual substitutes – the finest players in the world, I might add – to come to a determination: Wynton was right. Nobody plays as high, or as well as Roger…”  – Harry Connick Jr.

Mark your calendars now for May 19!
