New Year’s Eve jazz at The Harmon, Tacoma

If First Night isn’t your thing and you still need a party to go to on New Year’s Eve, head for The Harmon in downtown Tacoma, where you’ll get cover-free big band jazz rocking tunes until midnight on December 31.

The man behind it is Rich Wetzel, who’s been lining up regular jazz gigs for his Groovin’ Higher Orchestra for a while now, proving that big band jazz can draw a crowd on a weekend. Playing high energy jazz-rock-funk-Latin, the band has a tight ensemble and fluid soloists, even on unusual instruments like flugelhorn.

The all-ages show is free (no cover), from 9 p.m.-midnight Dec. 31 at The Harmon Brewery and Restaurant, 1938 Pacific Ave., Tacoma. 253-383-2739, harmonbrewingco.com
