The September 14 event, the fifth of a series of monthly dinner shows Mile High Jazz Band has scheduled at Living the Good Life, includes favorite big-band jazz tunes and features the vocal stylings of Jakki Ford. Pianist and band leader David Bugli said, “Our monthly shows draw a large audience, and every performance is different.” As a tribute to fire evacuees and first responders, the band will play “Moment of Sorrow,” with trumpet solo by Cassidy Robinson and trombone solo by Phil Jerome. Jakki Ford will sing “There’ll be Some Changes Made,” “Just Friends,” and more favorite tunes.
