Jazz in the Barn

“If you want a true jazz experience go hear Kareem Kandi. Just sit back and transport yourself to any jazz club in the world where you imagine you want to be and Kareem will take you there because he is a classic jazz musician.” – Northwest Jazz Profile

It’s Great Bend’s biggest event of the season, our annual Jazz in the Barn Gala, this year featuring the Kareem Kandi World Orchestra.

Your ticket to this special (21-and-older) fundraiser will include not only your admission, but a beautiful catered meal, a drink ticket, and some surprise special gifts for the evening from our sponsors. Featuring microbrews from Potlatch Brewing and High Steel Bridge and custom cocktails from Hardware Distillery, the evening will of course also feature a number of fun opportunities to support Great Bend’s work with youth, including an exciting live auction, and an amazing evening of live music from one of the best jazz ensembles around.

As profiled by Seattle Weekly: “This is as tight a group as any in these parts. They launch from a foundation of straight-ahead jazz, but readily infuse the songs with a range of styles and grooves as the moment dictates. The band’s collective command of dynamics is particularly striking. Every tune has an organic, satisfying and intelligent arc, with vivid aural colors throughout. This show was the musical equivalent of an action movie, and I was on the edge of my seat all night.”
