The cost is $20 for adults, $15 for senior citizens/students, and $5 for children under 12.

“In the past, this event was held in February, but is being moved to March in the hope of more favorable weather,” said Cheri Kalman, chairperson of the event.

Kalman said that in case of snow, the snow date will be Sunday, March 2, 2014 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Livingston High School.

Each year, about 200 people attend the Jazz Band Dinner Dance.
