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
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
