The holiday season will be in full swing on Saturday, Dec. 14, when the Tar River Swing Band brings their rendition of holiday favorites to The Clayton Center at 8 PM. The show follows an afternoon of outdoor holiday fun when the Clayton Chamber presents the annual Clayton Christmas parade from 3-5 PM.
So plan to make a day of it. Take in the parade, dinner and then the sounds of a Big Band Christmas with the Tar River Swing Band. Led by Jonathan Wacker, East Carolina University director of percussion studies, the band features 17 of North Carolina’s greatest jazz improvisers. The audience will swing along to seasonal favorites as well as classic big band arrangements. Tickets to the 8 PM show are $20.
