"You guys were amazing tonight!" April 2, 2013
~ Jaci Webb Mach

"Thank you guys so much! You rocked the Palm Springs Air Museum last night and everyone loved it."
Oct. 24, 2012

~ Lisa Slam

"I am a German tourist and had the pleasure to attend your excellent performance at the Palm Springs Village Fest on January 9, 2014. In particular, I liked your cover version of Carrie Underwood's "Good Girl", which is much better than the original." January 10, 2014

~ Christian Junge

"I really enjoyed performing with the band tonight. Took 55 years off of my age. Really great faculty, Parents and of course those remarkable Boys and Girls who are the future of Humanities in our country. I have the deepest respect for all of you."

Welcome to Heatwave Jazz & Show Band

Heatwave is a Professional Youth Band,

sponsored by the
Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley.

Based in the Pete & Edna Carlson Music Club in Palm Desert, California, the group performs in many different venues, for numerous functions across the Coachella Va
lley and beyond.

Now, in Portland, Oregon we have the Pacific Northwest Heatwave Show Band, who will be taking their first tour this Spring to meet up with Heatwave in Southern California.
also in Portland, Oregon, Jefferson High School, where Jim Little developed the concept of the Las Vegas Style Show Band at the High School level, in the 70s.

The Sounds of Jefferson was the premier band in the region, playing for everything from building dedications to the Trailblazers' ticker tape parade.

The new Heatwave's Sounds of Jefferson is just now getting off the ground under the direction of one of the original band members' students.

Check back to see more info about all 3 programs in the coming weeks!
