New Year’s Eve in Huntsvegas

The Silvery Moon Band is a local jazz group.

I checked out The Silvery Moon Band a few weeks ago and really enjoyed their music and performance. I tracked them down to find out what they are up to for New Year's Eve weekend, as well as some other great New Year's Eve party options in the Rocket City.

If I had to pick an instrument to play, it would be the trum...bone!

Barbara LaMere and her husband, Bob, are the band's vocalists.

There are a lot of musicians in the Silvery Moon Band!

The Silvery Moon Band was formed in 2014 by Anna Fergison, who also serves as the band and business manager, and features 18 musicians for the traditional Big Band. They also have a group of 8-9 for smaller venues and events.

Mark your calendars for Silvery Moon Band's next big event. They'll be at Botanical Gardens' Love Your Gardens on February 16th.

Hanging out with the band!

Anna and I hit it off; I'd hang out with her.

I met lots of live-music lovers at the event!

I played the drums for a minute!

I also met some Fun Doug fans too. You're making me blush.
