Stardust Big Band  at the

Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa

Coming Dates:

Sunday, March 15 starting at 3:00 PM 

Arlington Resort Hotel Crystal Ballroom, 239 Central, Hot Springs

 

 

The Stardust Big Band continues to  

attract dancers from states that border Arkansas since Stardust provides fantastic live dance music so often missing in area events.

Though Stardust performs for many weddings and special events their impetus is on providing a live dancing experience each month at the Arlington Hotel and Spa.

 

 Admission is $8 but is free for students 18 years and younger.

Dancers from Memphis, St. Louis, Texarkana, Austin and Houston continue to frequent this monthly event to enjoy and practice their dance routines.

 

The evening’s entertainment promises as

much for viewing as dancing since area dance instructors bring their students to practice dancing in a live musical venue. 

 

This powerhouse 17 piece big band, organized in 1982, is the only big band consistently performing in Arkansas.  The popular TV show “Dancing With the Stars" would be hard pressed to compete with some of the professional dancers that attend this event!!!

 

For information call: 501-767-5482 or www.stardustband.net.

A very short bio on the Hot Springs Jazz Society:

 

January 1992 is the birthday of the Hot Springs Jazz Society, and the date of its first official membership meeting.

This organization was founded to perpetuate, preserve and promote the jazz music, an original American art form.

The mission is partially accomplished through a scholarship program that sends qualified music students to the summer jazz camp at the University of Arkansas -Monticello.

The mission is further accomplished by providing jazz music events in the Hot Springs area, most notably the free outdoor Jazz Fest concert held every September. 

This year marked the 22nd Jazz Fest, which also provided music education seminars, workshops, lectures and a variety of jazz concerts.  

The efforts of the Hot Springs Jazz Society have brought national recognition to our jazz events, resulting in increased tourism and nationally known artists requesting performance appearances at Jazz Fest.


 

The Hot Springs Jazz Society is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to perpetuating, promoting and preserving Jazz Music, an original American art form. The Jazz Society is funded in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, Hot Springs Advertising and Promotion Commission, Arts on Tour, Weyerhaeuser Foundation and Elisabeth Wagner Foundation along with numerous other corporate and private sponsors.
