Youth Band Program

The Western Swing Society has formed a Youth Program to get the next generation of Western Swingers involved!

The board has created a committee
to manage the youth program consisting of Edd
Burhans, Olen Dillingham and Dave Rietz.

We have contracted a Western Swing Youth Director of Music
Dave Chan.

When we get the youth band operational and with some material prepared to perform, we plan to feature our WSS-sponsored youth band during
each month’s dance session so that they can get some invaluable
on-stage experience.

We are looking for middle to high-school-aged youth
as a foundation for our band. We can supplement from our
regular WSS musician base for any instruments needed for

If you know of a budding musician interested in furthering
his or her skills, please get in touch with Edd!
