GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 9, 2018) – For the second consecutive year, the Stage Band at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University will present The Warehouse Jazz and Supper Club event on April 21, 2018 at the N.C. A&T Band Center.

This year’s theme, “Aggie Rhythm and Blues Review,” will feature music and arrangements made popular by artists like Earth, Wind and Fire, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye. Assistant director of bands, Lamon Lawhorn, D.M.A., says event goers are in for a treat.

“They can expect good food, good music and a great atmosphere,” he said. “Attendees will experience an evening where they will be transported through time and reminisce about ‘the good old days’.”

“These type of events are necessary to help to support the students who, through their involvement with the University Band Program, support the university,” Lawhorn said.

General admission tickets are $40 while tickets for students with identification is $25. The ticket price includes a buffet dinner.

Events like these also give the musicians and singers the opportunity to showcase their talents to an appreciative audience while building upon skills like literacy, intuition, sensitivity, reasoning, imagination and dexterity.

“By purchasing a ticket, the public helps to generate additional funding for the program,” Lawhorn said. “The University Band Program continuously supports the Greensboro community through numerous performances, acts of community service and stands as the largest student organization on the campus of North Carolina A&T State University. The international visibility of the University Band Program places the students in the role as leading ambassadors for this fine institution and this great city.”
