Those who enjoy classic cocktails and jazz music in the style of the 1940s can plan to attend Jazz & Cocktails, a special evening coming to the Nimitz Museum Grand Ballroom in Fredericksburg on Saturday, November 15, 2014.

The inaugural event is designed to evoke the spirit and atmosphere surrounding the World War II era on the home front, according to Brandon Vinyard, Director of Marketing and Public Relations.

“As our museum grows we want to reach out to new audiences with fresh new programing,” Vinyard said. “This event will be a fun atmosphere where guests will not only enjoy themselves, but learn a little about the World War II era through the cocktail demonstration and live 1940’s music”.

The night begins at 7:30 p.m. with a special presentation by Philip Greene, writer, cocktail historian, and co-founder of the Museum of the American Cocktail. The popular presenter will demonstrate how to mix famous military cocktails that were popular during the war era, offering sample tastings to guests.

From 8:30 until 11:00 p.m., the Kris Kimura Trio will play 1940s-era swing and jazz for listening and dancing. Kimura is well-known around the Austin music scene for his tasteful and professional musical style that features top young jazz talents.

Tickets are $50 per person and seating is limited. Tickets are available on http://www.pacificwarmuseum.org/news-events/jazz-cocktails/.

Seating is extremely limited for this premier event, so guests are encouraged to reserve places early.

Funds raised go to the Admiral Nimitz Foundation, which manages and provides financial support to the National Museum of the Pacific War, which is a Texas Historical Commission property.
