NEPR Jazz Holiday Party Swings With Frank And Ella

Lisa Green reports from Hadley. Whether it was the opportunity to dress up (vintage style), dance to a traditional big band or meet the faces behind the mics, New England Public Radio listeners showed their support at the radio station’s second annual “Jazz Holiday Party” on Saturday, Dec. 10 at the Hadley Farms Meeting House. Hovering over the party were the spirits of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, who came to life through singers Rob Zappulla and Dawning Holmes, as they covered the tunes of the two jazz legends backed by the 18-piece Jeff Holmes Big Band. All proceeds from the evening will go directly to supporting the programs and services of NEPR. [Above, the station’s CEO and General Manager Martin Miller and Pete Sokolowski, substitute jazz host.]

NEPR listeners apparently love to dance as much as they love jazz; Pam Malumphy, executive director of development and major gifts, with Rosie Caine, an NEPR board member, in their finest vintage attire.
