The Annual Laguna Beach Blues & Jazz Festival was inaugurated by John and Julie Heussenstamm 15 years ago at a time when funding to the arts in schools was experiencing severe cut backs. Sitting in the beautiful, new Artists’ Theater, listening to their kids play in the LBHS Jazz band during a HS musical, the idea was born that a music fundraiser that involved professional musicians and student musicians, could augment the music program – literally keep it alive.
Today, the Blues & Jazz Festival is the music department’s biggest fundraiser and it still counts heavily on these funds. The fundraising money is used for coaches, tournament and jazz festival entry fees, musical arrangements, supplies, awards, scholarships, specialists, Disney Magic music day, food for tournaments, food for summer band camp, cleaning and alteration of band uniforms, upgraded buses for long distance trips and of course the CD recording.
