A Summer Soundscape

Midwest Big Band featuring Mary Kay Steele & Jim Bulanda

Saturday, August 27 • 8 pm

Big band music of the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s has gifted American culture with arguably the greatest love songs on the charts. Listening to the crooning of “Rat Pack” members Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bing Crosby, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop on the radio was enough to melt any icy heart until it skipped a beat to the thrill of a saxophone. Band leaders like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Glenn Miller drew crowds and bridged racial divides through the love language of swing.

Midwest Big Band has added more than a dozen new tunes for you to enjoy since their last performance at Memorial Opera House earlier this year in March!

For the past three years, this professional quality, historical, 18-piece big band has been thrilling audiences across Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland with their world-class talent. Instrumentalists include the best semi-professionals in the Region, some of whom have toured professionally with Ray Charles, played freelance in Los Angeles, or taught music at the high school and college levels. Local vocalists Mary Kay Steele from La Porte, who has performed in community theater in Northwest Indiana for many years, along with Jim Bulanda, who is famous for his “Tribute to Frank Sinatra Show,” have joined the band to style the jazz standards.

This event is sponsored by Memorial Opera House Foundation.

Memorial Opera House is proud to present Miss Jamie & the Farmhands, a popular music show for young kids and their families, sharing values from life down on the farm through songs both new and familiar.

Sing, dance, laugh and learn about life down on the farm with Miss Jamie and her puppet animal friends! Kids use the power of their imagination to help with the chores, plant and harvest the crops, and pretend to be pollinators and more in this interactive musical show that’s fun for kids and grownups alike!

Perfect for ages 3-7, but younger and older children will enjoy the show as well!

Visit to learn more!

Jamie has been a professional singer, actor, and writer from a very young age. When her family moved from the big city of Los Angeles to a 600-acre goat and cattle ranch in small town Texas, her life and her art was forever shaped by her love of animals, nature, and the outdoors. When she had her first child in 2012, she became a children’s music performer, and decided to theme her act around “the farm,” with books and albums based on the characters in the show.

In addition to performing for kids and families year-round in person and online, Jamie is a public speaker on the importance of music and literacy in early childhood education and how to make learning fun, as well as a commercial voice actor for national brands on TV and radio. Her interests lie in native gardening, solar power and electric vehicles, and sustainability. She now resides in Batavia, Illinois in a little red farmhouse with her fellow musician/business partner husband and their three children, five chickens, and a dog named Bingo.

This event is sponsored by Memorial Opera House Foundation and LimeLights Sponsorship Fund.
