Today's featured entertainer is the Big Mischief Big Band:
"Big Mischief is a big band founded and led by trumpeter Jason Garcia. It’s namesake was inspired by Jason’s 4 year old son who loves to tinker with things to figure out how they work. Big Mischief’s playful nature is evident in its enjoyment of performing a wide variety of jazz styles. Many of these come in the form of exciting, original arrangements written by the band’s composer and 3rd trumpeter, Brent Irwin. It can perform with as many as 17 pieces, but is usually a 10 piece group. The smaller size can pack a powerful punch; a credit to the skill and experience of its musicians. It’s members are from the Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia area and have decades of experience with careers in music education, freelancing, and U.S. military bands. The band has enjoyed collaborating with numerous exceptionally talented vocalists"

I meet so many new faces when I work in person events. It fills my heart with so much happiness how many people make it a point to tell me that now more than ever they do everything they can to shop small. So, for those of you who continue to love and support not only my little business but others. THANK YOU ❤️

You help keep the lights on, the kids fed, and the bills paid.
