Queen City Jazz Band

Helen Daley It’s been about ten years since Queen

City Jazz Band has entertained the audiences of the Arizona Classic Jazz Society. The band’s hometown is Denver, Colorado, and they recently celebrated their 50th Anniversary. Although there are no original members still playing, many of them did attend the party. It is safe to say this band has been delighting audiences everywhere for a long time with their rendition of music from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. When you talk to people who have

heard this band, their first comment will likely be, “Oh great, they have Wende Harston as their vocalist!” She has been appearing with the band for the last 15 years. Wende’s authentic Blues style,

delivered in her husky alto, along with appropriate gyrations to songs such as “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” brings down the house. Wende not only sings from her heart to yours, she also writes, dances and acts, having appeared in many feature films and made-for-TV series. Queen City will be appearing at the

Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort, One San Marcos Place, Chandler, on Sunday, September 23 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. Food and drink will be available for purchase. Cost for members of the Arizona Classic Jazz Society is $10, non-members $15. Join ACJS on the 23rd and get in free. Yearly membership is $35 couple, $25 single. For more information, go to or call 480-620-3941.  — September 2012
