Mile High Jazz Band presents the jazz and poetry of big band ‘Think Green’ at A to Zen Studio | Carson City Nevada News


The Mile High Jazz Band will be joined by singer Jakki Ford and five award-winning poets and readers for an evening of big band jazz and poetry on Tuesday, March 15, 7:30-9:30 p.m., at A to Zen Studio, 1803 N. Carson Street in Carson City.

General admission tickets are $12 and can be purchased online at Compulsory vaccinations. Masks are optional. It can also be viewed for free live on Facebook here at the time of the performance.

The poets and readers are Rita Geil, Timothy Rhodes, Wayne Carlson, Terri Breeden and Ursula Carlson. The theme for the evening is “Think Green”, and each poem will be followed by a tune performed by the band, several featuring vocalist Jakki Ford.

Pianist and conductor David Bugli said: “We’d love to tell you the tunes we’re going to play, but that would spoil the audience’s enjoyment of connecting the poems to the tunes that follow them. You have to be there or watch the live stream to experience it.”

Mile High Jazz Band is supported in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts and by private donations. For more information about the band, its activities and event tickets, visit
