Alumni Jazz Band
KU Alumni Jazz Band Welcomes New Members
All KU Alumni Musicians are welcomed to perform with the KU Alumni Jazz Band. We encourage you to join and enjoy the music.
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings in the R.G. Wells Rehearsal Hall at KU's Schaeffer Auditorium Building.
Our Rehearsal and Concert Schedule can be found in the google calendar on the schedule page of this website.
Come and join the Alumni Jazz Band as it is a great time to play the great music of the Big Band Era, as well as some of the modern charts of the day. It is also a time to socialize about past and present memories.
If you have any questions or are interested in making great music with fellow alumni, please contact the Jazz Band at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon,
R. G. Wells & Charles Randazzo, Directors
About the KU Alumni Jazz Band
Alumni musicians have been an active part of the KU Music program for many years. Alumni of the KU Jazz Band have informally participated in KU Jazz Band concerts dating back to 1988.
In September 1997, the Alumni Jazz Band "officially" became organized under the direction and guidance of Richard G. Wells. Professor Wells directed the university bands for many years before he retired from teaching and directing bands at the University.
The Alumni Jazz Band has performed several concerts over the past years. The KU Alumni Jazz Band performs music that salutes the Jazz Bands of the 40's through the 21st Century.
