The Jazz Factory will be traveling to Orlando, Florida in March to compete at the Disney World Festival. We were also selected to perform on the Waterside stage in Downtown Disney. Our Holiday Dinner performance is set up to help us raise money for our trip. The event is “Holiday Attire” the food will be amazing the venue is cozy and the music will be worth listening to. We have limited seating so please don’t miss out on this wonderful performance. Attached is the order form, if you or your party is interested in attending please return the form to me no later than Dec 2nd. 

Thank you, James Hairston
