Shepherd University Friends of Music (SUFOM) will host their third annual "Tuxedo Junction" event on Friday, May 7, 2010, at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV. This year's theme "Stomping at the Savoy" will channel the New York nightclub scene circa the big band era--think The Stork Club, Twenty-one, Delmonico’s, The Oyster Bar at Grand Central, the Russian Tea Room and of course the Savoy Ballroom.
At this year's black-tie event, attendees will enjoy the sounds of the Shepherd University Jazz Ensemble as they play music from golden age greats such as Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, and Duke Ellington. The 2010 Tuxedo Junction will also feature a silent auction as well as a live auction this year with local auctioneer extraordinaire Marty Kable. Additionally, Pretty in the Panhandle will be providing full event coverage for a "Pretty People" feature following the event.
SUFOM is a non-profit organization that supports not only the Shepherd University music program, but also supports a thriving music program within the surrounding community. All proceeds from Tuxedo Junction will go to benefit the students of the Shepherd University Department of Music.
