Dancz band takes jazz al fresco at Blue Sky concert on College Avenue

Steve Dancz (BMus '80) began teaching jazz studies at UGA in 1992. Since that time, the son of long-time Redcoat Band director Roger Dancz has written the scores for 12 National Geographic Explorer specials. In 1999, he took the UGA Jazz Band I (below) to the Montreux Jazz Festival. Says Dancz: "I feel fortunate to do something that brings others joy—and make a living at it." See article on this page.
