Sequim’s Stardust Big Band tunes up tonight to commemorate former director

SEQUIM — The Stardust Big Band will perform in a free concert at 5 p.m. today to commemorate the 80th birthday of Sanford Feibus, the group’s former director.

The concert will be at the James Center for the Performing Arts at Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Ave.

“It will be a potluck party since we expect a lot of people to come, and the food and drink you bring will be your gifts,” said Robert Hagan, Stardust Big Band trumpeter and vocalist.

Bring chairs, blankets

Attendees can bring their own lawn chairs and picnic blankets if they so choose, Hagan said.

Hagan encourages attendees to congratulate Feibus during the event.

“We want to spend some time with him, too, and show him how much we appreciate what he has given to us and to this community for so many years,” Hagan said.

“We hope you and your families will come and celebrate Sanford’s life with us,” he said.

“Say hello and we’ll all sing ‘Happy Birthday.’ ”

Stardust is composed of 18 musicians who play music from the big-band era.

The band is based in Sequim.
