Despite the difficulty of finding parking, due to hockey tournaments, many band members arrived by 6:00 to help unload and get our equipment set up before dance lessons began. We wore black and white with jackets and the band's blue ties and cummerbunds. The band relaxed during dance lessons 7:00-7:55 by Terry and Cindy Gardner of TC Swing, enjoying pizza (delivered a bit on the late side) and water. There was no intermission and no break between sets. The chorus performed on the risers to the band's right, and the band was on the band stand; because of limited front-to-back space, Glen directed from next to the 2nd tenor sax, rather than in front. The audience was welcome to dance to any of the Roseville Big Band selections except the first one, "In the Mood," which featured a dance exhibition. The silent auction bidding stopped at 10:10, and Glen announced the winners at the end of set 4. There were 350-400 paid admissions at $25 each for tables or $20 for seats at the back. The higher-than-normal price included both the show and the afterglow, which in previous years was priced separately and held at a different location from the show.

The band sold one tape and one CD.
