‘Evening of Romance’ offers a big-band valentine on Feb 13

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Tickets are on sale for the Purdue Jazz Band’s 10th annual Valentine’s Day celebration “Evening of Romance,” scheduled for Feb. 13 at University Plaza in West Lafayette.

The cabaret-style event, which recreates the atmosphere of big-band dance clubs of the 1940s — where couples came to enjoy music, dancing, food and each other’s company — offers seating at candlelit tables surrounding the dance floor.

The Purdue Jazz Band starts playing at 8 p.m. in the hotel’s grand ballroom. The event runs to approximately 10:30 p.m. At intermission, a dessert buffet will be offered and a jazz combo will perform on the hotel mezzanine. Gourmet coffees and a cash bar complete the romantic experience.

Directed by M.T. “Mo” Trout, the Purdue Jazz Band will set the mood for the evening by performing a selection of romantic jazz tunes for listening and dancing.

All seats are reserved. Tables accommodate either four or eight people. Couples and individuals wishing to sit together as a group need to make reservations at the same time. Guests can select their table location at the time of purchase. Tickets are $19.50 per person, which includes the dessert buffet. To reserve tickets through the Purdue box office; call 765-494-4933 or 800-914-SHOW.

A sell-out is anticipated, so early reservations are encouraged. For more information call Kathy Matter at 765-496-6785.
