Daniel Boone High School is the next area high school to hold its jazz event and ten bands will perform over the course of more than five hours on Friday evening.

The concert takes place at Daniel Boone High School, 501 Chestnut St. in Birdsboro.

Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for children.

Five hours of great jazz for six bucks, how often do you get a deal like that.

Pizza, hot dogs and other snack foods will be available for sale.

The event is sponsored by the Cavalcade of Bands, Inc., and organized and presented by the Daniel Boone Music Boosters parent association.

What follows here is a list of the bands which will play and the time of their performance:

-- Brandywine Heights -- 5:30 p.m.
-- Pottstown High School -- 6 p.m.
-- Reading High School -- 6:30 p.m.
-- Wilson High School -- 7:10 p.m.
-- Boyertown Area Senior High School -- 7:40 p.m.
-- North Penn High School -- 8:15 p.m.

Also performing will be two Daniel Boone elementary school bands.

And if you're wondering what you might be in for if you go, here is a video of a performance by the Boyertown Area High School Big Band at the Jazz at Boyertown event on March 1.

(Pay no attention to the trembling hand holding the camera, and just listen to "Bemsha Swing"....)
