The Central City Swing Band will perform its annual Fall Concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, at the Unity Chapel of
Light Church, 1165 Stubblefield Road, Orcutt.

The program will feature music arranged in a traditional or vintage swing style, as well as arrangements in a modern jazz style. It will consist of all instrumental arrangements with no vocals.

The concert is performed in a church with comfortable seating, but no room for dancing.

Led by Bob Swayze, the group has been performing on the Central Coast for a number of years. The band has 18 musicians in a standard big band configuration: five saxophones, five trombones, four trumpets and piano, guitar, bass and drums.

The band has had several personnel changes since the last performance. Scott Anderson has replaced Zack Barker on the 2nd alto sax part, and Sean Causby has replaced Tim Towne on the drums.

There is no advanced sale of tickets, and there is no admission charge for this event. There is a donation basket in the lobby and any donations are split equally with the church, with the balance going into the band’s music acquisition fund.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
