Dale Alstrom’s Jazz Society, featuring Alison Alstrom
Dale Alstrom and members of his Jazz Society have appeared with such legends as Freddie Martin, Ray Price, Tex Beneke, and Louis Bellson, and have been gracing local stages for decades. Playing songs by jazz greats from Duke Ellington to Count Basie to Woody Herman, along with originals by leader Dale Alstrom himself, their lush layered horns and unexpected rhythms arranged in Dale’s singular style will make you want to dance! Alison Alstrom is quite literally at home on the mic–born in San Francisco and weaned on music. Facebook Event
