Submitted By Victoria Sanchez De Alba
Dust off your dance shoes as the USS Hornet presents the Harry James Orchestra on Saturday, March 22 onboard the historic aircraft carrier. Directed by trumpet virtuoso Fed Rake, The Harry James Orchestra is considered one of the most popular Big Bands in the United States and Canada. Attendees will be able to show off their moves on one of three large dance floors on the enclosed hangar deck from 8 p.m. to midnight. While not required, period attire is encouraged and welcomed.
A bit rusty on your Cha Cha and Rumba moves? Not to worry. Free dance lessons will be provided throughout the night by Jim Truesdale, a former Fred Astaire dance instructor.
Ticket prices are:
$75 per person for Cabaret Reserved seating with tables near the dance floor with great views of the stage.
$60 per person for reserved seating near the dance floor.
$40 per person general admission.
A cash bar and food will also be available for purchase.
If the event does not sell out, general admission tickets will be available at the door for $45 per person. However, due to its popularity, the event does tend to sell out. Order online today!
