Holiday Swing: PB&Jammies December 5


The Germantown Performing Arts Center has hosted its youth music education series - Peanut Butter & Jam - for 20 years now.  On December 5 at 6:00 p.m., GPAC will ring and swing in the holidays with a special Peanut Butter & Jammies show, featuring big band holiday music and other swing with Jeremy Shrader and the New Memphis Hepcats.  The swing kids can dress in their favorite jammies, and milk and cookies will be served afterward.  I may just show up for the cookies!
