(Lincoln City, Oregon) – End your Oregon coast summer with a new swing in your step. Literally.

The Lincoln City Cultural Center is hosting the be-bopping, skidoo-ing, super-swinging summertime return of the Lincoln Pops Orchestra, in Lincoln City for the first time since February. This popular Oregon coast ensemble will be playing a Big Band Saturday night concert on Saturday, August 29, at the center, 540 NE Hwy. 101.

Tickets are on sale now, $11 in advance and $13 at the door. For three hours worth of dancing to live music, that’s quite a deal. Current LCCC members will receive $2 off the ticket price, either in advance or at the door.

The Pops will be playing favorites from the era of Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and the gang, and the dance floor will be open. You’re invited to just sit and listen, or really cut a rug, in the auditorium at the LCCC. Beer, wine and refreshments will be available for sale. The doors will open at 6:30 pm, with the concert scheduled to begin at 7 pm. To reserve yours, call 541-994-9994.
