At the Southport Beach House
Live Music by The Pat Crawford Big Band
Founded on April 13, 1950 by “a group of Kenosha Art Lovers united to aid in further development of art and art appreciation in the community”, The KAA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to art enrichment in the community, art education, and to artists of all kinds. Help us to continue with our mission.
The Pat Crawford Big Band, based in Southeastern Wisconsin, features a far-reaching jazz songbook covering over 70 years of jazz. The Big Band is a 20 piece big band with a full sound and great talent. Only the best musicians even get an audition–and only the most talented players are selected from the group. Several high school students play in the big band but most of the players are old, seasoned veterans in the jazz world.
