Event Description:

You can chase the post-holiday blues away with Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and the Lincoln Pops Orchestra, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. The Lincoln Pops will be playing favorites from the era of Big Band and Swing, and the dance floor will be open. You're invited to just sit and listen, or really cut a rug, in the auditorium at the LCCC.

Beer, wine and refreshments will be available for sale. The Pops have sold out two dance nights in a row; to reserve your seat, call 541-994-9994.

The Lincoln Pops Orchestra, also known as the Lincoln Pops Big Band, has been performing in Lincoln County for more than 30 years. The band has evolved into one of the finest big bands in Oregon. A nonprofit organization, the Lincoln Pops is dedicated to preserving and passing along the heritage of the big band era.

Led by Newport High School's Band/Choir Director and trumpet artist, John Bringetto, the Lincoln Pops plays all types of dance music, including swing, Latin and jazz tunes. Members include current and retired professional musicians, band directors, former high school and college players, and even a few talented local high school students. And every big band needs a great vocalist; the Pops has four. The band has a regular gig on the third Thursday of each month at Gleneden Beach Community Hall.
