Heatwave Show Band is a Professional Youth Band, with its first base in the Pete & Edna Carlson Music Club in Palm Desert, CA, and its second in the Pacific Northwest, in Portland, OR. Heatwave Show band is an after school music program that aims to educate young musicians in real world skills and experiences in the music industry. From recording at George Lucas Skywalker Ranch and Conway Recording Studios, to the annual Spring Tour this March 30, 2017 - April 3, 2017, these are a few examples of the many opportunities we offer to the students in this program.
The Pacific Northwest Heatwave Show Band needs your help for their up and coming tour to the San Francisco Bay Area & Monterey, CA for the Next Generation Jazz Festival. This outstanding professional youth group has an open invitation to appear as a guest band at this most prestigious jazz festival. As this group is still in its infancy, it needs the financial support of our friends, family, and community.
In conjunction with GoFundMe, we also have our Tour Benefit Concert to raise our tour budget of $12,500. This includes airfare, lodging, food, and transportation for the whole tour, covering multiple performances and events throughout the Bay Area at no expense to the students. For anyone in the Portland area, our concert is on March 15 at the Star Theater in Downtown Portland! We would love to see both new and familiar faces in the Portland Area at our show. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students under 21.
