WAMA Concerts and Workshops
Concert at Hope Grange in Winlock, WA
Appreciation for a great band's outstanding performance is often seen. It is often heard. But at the conclusion of Stumptown Swing's incredible concert at Hope Grange last Saturday night, the appreciation for this incredible music and the fantastic experience shared by all who attended was also something that could be actually felt! Stumptown Swing had its audience exuberantly tapping their feet, clapping, laughing, and at the end begging for more. This show was nothing short of amazing and will be remembered as one of the greatest concerts WAMA has had the pleasure of hosting at the Hope Grange. The audience was fabulous though many shared how badly they felt that so many friends were unable to attend. We are sorry too. But fear not! Rumors are quickly spreading that future WAMA concerts are already in the planning stages.
