Jazz picnic with BBQ for sale.

This is the annual Jazz BBQ Picnic held in the courtyard of the Hastings HS/MS campus, featuring the Hastings High School Jazz Ensemble. The big band will be performing traditional swing, latin and funk.

Smoked bbq ribs, chicken and sides prepared by “Dr. Ribs” Kenneth Jernigan (who is also the ensemble’s director) will be sold during the performance, along with Belgian waffles and lemonade. The proceeds will be used to reduce the cost of the High School Music Students’ next trip to compete in a national festival. A donation will also be given to the Hastings Food Pantry.
