The Destin Area’s Best Restaurant Dinner Show
Calling all Snowbirds! We all know that Big Band orchestras were part of our parents’ (the greatest!) generation, but, fortunately, our parents passed on their love of jazz orchestras to us.
Snowbirds are invited to join us Thursday, Feb. 23, at Fudpucker’s on the Island, 1318 Miracle Strip Parkway, Fort Walton Beach, at 6 pm, for a special buffet dinner followed at 7 pm by your favorite Big Band music performed by the popular 18-piece DownBeat Jazz Orchestra (DJO).
The DJO, featuring the captivating torch singer, Gina Walker (who has often been compared to Rosemary Clooney) is an 18-piece orchestra that performs in the Big Band style. Having opened this fall at the Panama City Jazz Festival, their sets can include compositions by Dizzy Gillespie, Leonard Bernstein, and Don Menza as well as featuring traditional Big Band era favorites Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, and others.
Dancing is optional but definitely encouraged!
A Southern Buffet featuring BBQ Chicken, Pork Roast with Pan Gravy, Shrimp & Grits, Vegetarian Pasta Bake and a variety of delicious side dishes, will be provided. The price includes tea and soda plus a 15% gratuity. Sales Tax is extra. For children Chicken Fingers and Pizza are offered in addition to all of the adult items. Special Drink Packages and a Cash Bar will be available.
Buffet seating begins at 6 pm followed at 7 pm by your favorite Big Band Sound.
Dinner Buffet & Show: $50 for Adults, $48 for Military and Seniors and $33 for Children.
