/ / / Cheryl Schweizer photo The Wenetchee Big Band brought Jazz classics to the Apple Festa at Rest Awhile Fruit Stand. Big Band plays old E00vorites a : Paterc):; fruit stand by Cheryl Schweizer, staff writer The Wenatchee Big Band appeared in Pateros in sweatshirts and jeans, their bandstands set up on a cement slab outside a garage door. The drums and piano, microphones and speak- ers were high-lath, sleek, hip, state of the art. But time rolled away when the music began. The strains of Satin Doll transformed the side yard at Rest Awhile Fruit Stand into the ballroom at the Savoy--or maybe the old dance pavilion that once stood out over the waters of Lake Chelan. The music brought back the days of Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller and Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, singing and playing songs by Cole Porter and Johnny Mercer and George and Ira Gershwin. "All those won- derful songs," said Glenn Isaacson, the band's director. "These are the standards." The Wenatchee Big Band is made up of volunteers; "nobody gets paid in this band," Isaacson said. The doctors and business owners and teachers and high school stu- dents who make up the band meet once each week to practice the good old stuff, as well as playing Concerts year round. (The band does charge a fee for performances, to pay for music and extras like sweatshirts.) Most of the band members are attracted to it by the opportunity to play--and by the music, Isaacson said. "Horn player-type musicians love to play this type of music." The music has been around for most of the century, made popu- lar by famous musicians, never completely out of the popular imagination; this is its appeal, he said. The band appeared the fruit stand's annual Apple Festa, two days of special events designed to spot- light apple harvest in Washington's apple country. The local jazz-blues- folk group Mien appeared Sunday afternoon; there were weaving, spinning and quilting demonstra- tions, fresh apples and apple pre- serves and baked goods for sale.
