Proceeds from the fifth annual “Jazz in the Box” concerts, set for Jan. 28-30, will go toward helping the band’s 135 members travel to Washington, D.C. to represent California in this year’s National Memorial Day Parade. The parade is broadcast to military service members around the world. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren last fall nominated Lincoln’s band to march in the parade. At the time, McKenzie called the trip “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”. This year’s Jazz in the Box will have a Mardi Gras theme and feature performances by the Lincoln Jazz Band and Jazz Lab. A Touch of Brass, a professional big band, will lend its talents to the opening night show on Jan. 28.
