Band will swing, play new tunes


LEWISTON- The Mike Willette Swing Band, which sold out its last performance at the Franco-American Heritage Center, is looking for a repeat when it plays Saturday, May 6.

The evening will also include a moment when dancers from the audience will be welcomed to participate in a segment of the performance. In addition, the audience will be a part of the band’s first CD recording.

The concert is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. For reservations, call 689-2000. Tickets are $12 in advance; $15 at the door. For more information, call 783-1585, or visit the center’s Web site at
