LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston High School’s (LHS) Band Boosters will host its annual Jazz Band Dinner Dance on March 3 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the LHS cafeteria, which will be transformed into a nightclub for a night of music and a buffet dinner, catered by Il Giacalone’s.  

The Livingston Lancer and Lab Jazz Bands will be performing a full repertoire of songs, including classics like “Fly Me to The Moon” and “Feeling Good.” They will also play modern tunes such as “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.”

Jim Hegedus, director of the Lancer Band, and Erik Donough, Director of the Lab Band, have been rehearsing with the students for several months in preparation for this special evening.

“We’ve been practicing hard and it’s going to be a fun new experience,” said Carley Margolis, a freshman at LHS. 

“It’s incredible to play with people who really have a passion for what they do, and it’s wonderful to hear,” said Eli Siegel, a LHS junior in the Lancer Band. “Each song has its own unique style.”

Attendees will enjoy a fun night of dinner and dancing. 

"I really enjoy performing for an audience that can dance to our music, not just on a stage," said Scott Faber, a LHS junior in the Lancer Band. 

The Jazz Band Dinner Dance started eight years ago to highlight the talented student musicians and to serve as a fundraiser for the Band Boosters. It continues to be a huge success, with nearly 200 people attending each year.

Proceeds from the evening are used to help buy equipment for all the LHS bands (jazz bands, concert bands, marching band) and provide scholarships to graduating seniors. 

Tickets can be purchased online at or at the door the night of the show. 

Ticket prices are $20 for Adults ($25 if purchased after 2/17), $15 for students/senior citizens and $5 for children under 12 years old. Deadline for early-bird purchase has been extended to Saturday, Feb. 17.

For questions or more information, contact In the case of inclement weather, the snow date for this event is Sunday, March 4, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
