The Junction City Big Band was organized in 1987 under the direction of Dr. K. Earl Ericksen, then chair of the Weber State Department of Performing Arts. The Swing Era style dance band was formed specifically to give local musicians with big band experience an opportunity to continue playing for personal enjoyment as well as for community functions. Donating their time and musical skills, they have helped to keep the community “jumpin’” with the music of Glen Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sammy Kay, Freddie Martin, Harry James, and other great swing-era sounds. Lessons begin at 7:15 p.m. with the dance downbeat at 8:30 p.m. Best dress is recommended, which includes shirt and tie for men. Tickets $7.00 at the door. There is a $1.00 per person charge for the one hour dance lessons. Lessons will begin promptly at 7:15.

The Singleton Gallery Now Open in Eden If you’re looking for fine art, consider a visit to the Singleton Gallery at Ogden Valley Real Estate-Wolf Creek Resort Properties. Singleton specializes in nature and wildlife photography from Ogden Valley and other Intermountain locations. The gallery is located at 2595 Highway 162, Suite #2, and is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Singleton is an amateur photographer who has lived throughout the United States and traveled to numerous countries while serving 15 years with the Air Force. Growing up in Illinois and then living primarily in the southeastern U.S., a brief visit to Utah in the early ‘90s opened his eyes to a whole new world. The mountainous views inspired him. He returned to his home in Florida and quickly sought out the grandest of mountains, Mt. McKinley in Alaska. Within a few months, his belongings were packed and he hit the road driving nearly 5,000 miles and stopping at dozens of national parks on his way to Anchorage. The rugged beauty of Alaska prompted Bill to exchange his point and shoot camera for a more advanced 35mm SLR. A photographer was born. While in Alaska, Singleton frequently visited Denali National Park and Brooks Camp in Katmai National Park to photo- graph grizzlies. He also cruised several fjords and passages for glaciers and marine wildlife, and drove to the Spit of Homer for bald eagles, followed by a chase to capture the Northern Lights. After living in Anchorage for four years, Bill opted for a more moderate climate and settled in Utah during the summer of 1996 making Ogden his home. When not doing computer work, he spends time pursuing nature photography as well as other outdoor activities. He travels frequently to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and has recently added Zion National Park to his list of favorites. Bill has been utilizing Canon EOS equipment for the last 13 years, and has recently made the transition to digital. “I look to the natural beauty that surrounds me every day for limitless photographic inspiration and adventure,” Bill comments. “Utah has so much to offer for photographers and outdoor enthusiasts. I am already in awe, and have yet to discover many of the southern parks.” The Singleton Gallery at Ogden Valley Real Estate-Wolf Creek Resort Properties displays many of the photographer’s favorite views in and around Ogden Valley, plus some dynamic wildlife photographs.
