Holiday jazz concert to support Fishline

POULSBO — It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas — “Big Band Christmas” that is.

North Point Church in Poulsbo is set to present its second annual holiday concert to benefit the North Kitsap Fishline non-profit food bank. The event will be held at 7 p.m. Dec. 15 at the Sons of Norway lodge.

Billed as “a holiday celebration that swings,” the fundraising concert promises to be a tinsel-topped treat for the ears, with the added bonus of assisting struggling local families through the holiday season.

The concert will feature jazz-flavored Christmas tunes, including the vocal stylings of Earshot Jazz’s “Best Jazz Vocalist in the Northwest” Greta Matassa and her 16-piece professional backup band, dancing and delicious holiday desserts.

A variety of holiday baskets will also be raffled to help Fishline’s outreach.

“The holidays can be a tough time for families in need,” said event organizer and North Point Church music director Terry Marsh. “The cheer and festivities of the season that we look forward to often just magnifies their isolation and stress. Christmas is a great time for the entire Poulsbo community to reach out to those who are struggling to put food on the table.”

Tickets are $15 each. The purchase of two tickets will provide a local family in need with an emergency holiday food box that feeds four people for up to five days.

Tickets are available at North Point Church at 1779 Hostmark Street, Liberty Bay Books at 18881 Front Street, Mills Music at 19735 10th Avenue and the Fishline Thrift Store at 18916 3rd Avenue.
