The South Strong Road Crew: Andy Buckland, bass; Scott Dixon, drums; Doug Walrath, keyboard; and Sherry Walrath, vocals; will play throughout the service and lead the congregation in jazz versions of traditional gospel hymns. Others who will provide special music include Louise McCleery, Nan Berry, Jackie Tardiff, Leonard Bromberg, Louise and Joel Bunker and the Fairbanks Church Choir.

Jazz is no stranger to the church. Many famous jazz musicians began as church musicians. Those early beginnings show through in many well-known gospel and jazz tunes like “When the Saints Go Marching In.”

Everyone is invited to come and feel the beat and share in the fun at this fourth annual jazz service. Come early and stay late; the band will play jazz both before and after the service.
