The Analog Jazz Orchestra is back to close out 2023 with an “AJO Christmas Swing-A-Long” and will be performing arrangements by Duke Ellington, Jeff Holmes and Scott Arcangel of your favorite Christmas tunes and carols for your listening, dancing and caroling pleasure. This is going to be a night to remember. PLUS we will be having an Ugly Sweater Contest, so make sure to wear your worst Christmas sweater.
