BLHS Jazz Bands Perform at Jazz Night Fundraiser

On Friday, May 8th, both the BLHS Jazz Ensemble and Big Band performed at the annual Jazz Night. Jazz Night is one of two fundraisers done by the Basehor-Linwood High School bands (the other being the firework stand set up before the 4th of July). Included in the night were barbecue, music, and a silent auction. The money raised goes to the school’s marching, concert, and jazz bands, and will be used to fund things such as the show for next year’s marching band, music for the concert and jazz bands, and food for the kids at competitions.
