Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance, in partnership with The Tucson Mall, will present the second annual Cocktails & Classics- a charity benefit inspired by the swing era of music, fashion, food and cocktails! An elegant outdoor backdrop will set the scene for a night of glamorous fashions from the mall’s retailers, salons and jewelers. Stores will be encouraged to show their best black, white and red attires, keeping with the show’s upscale theme while encouraged to add their own personal flair to the night. The ticketed event will also include a culinary element from surrounding restaurants. Area eateries will provide appetizer, dessert and drink samplings for guests prior to the runway show.
Big band, big night
Attendees can "cut a rug" on the dance floor in the indoor terrazzo to sounds of the 16-piece Memories Big Band, playing classic greats, such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Duke Ellington.
A treasure of American music from the '40s to today, the Memories Big Band members have all shared the stage with the legendary musicians of the past. Established circa 1968, the swing band has attracted numerous talented musicians under the leadership of Cliff Juergens, one of the original Kayedettes and trumpet player in the Sammy Kaye Orchestra.
