Arlington's favorite party is back in person as we "Come Together" to celebrate connection and community! Blue Jean Ball 2022 will include live music by Mike Duke & the SoulTwisters, dancing, food and drinks, awards, socializing, and an irresistible silent auction at the newly renovated Arlington Community Center at 27 Maple St (ACA's home)!
We are also excited to be honoring local Arlington business Play Time with the 2022 Alan McClennen Community Arts Award!
Proceeds of the Silent Auction will support ACA's efforts to produce high quality, engaging community programs for Arlington and beyond!
All-night live entertainment will be provided by Mike Duke & The SoulTwisters!
Mike Duke & the SoulTwisters has a supercharged sound that draws from Texas shuffles, Stax Soul, Jump Blues, and New Orleans R&B. The band performs both nationally and abroad and has released a self-titled album featuring Mike’s soulful vocals and guitar.
Mike will be accompanied by long-time musical colleagues Steve Heck on keys and vocals, Greg Holt on bass, and Mark Texeira on drums. Their show is guaranteed to deliver a rockin’ good time!
This year's music is sponsored by Aikenhead Real Estate
