2023 Continues the Love of Music with Sunriver Music Festival

2023 continues the tradition of Sunriver Music Festival’s crowd-pleasing Valentine’s Dinner & Dance Concert.

Blue Skies is a 17-piece big band based in Eugene, Oregon and keeping alive the great tradition of big band swing music of the 1920s-1940s. The tight vocal harmonies of the Jewel Tones front the band with a sound reflecting the great trios of the ’30s and ’40s, from the Boswell Sisters to the Andrew Sisters.
