2006 Kaleidoscope of Music logo

This was the island's 7th Kaleidoscope of Music (my 4th, and probably the last) - a fundraiser organized by the Yokwe Yuk Women's Club (YYWC) that showcases many of Kwajalein's musically talented residents. The Kwajalein Saxophone Ensemble is part of the Community Band and performed It Don't Mean a Thing (Duke Ellington), Little Brown Jug (Glenn Miller), and Cool Saints.

I apologize for the flickering found in the video clips; the bright red tie die shirts played havoc with my camera's auto-white balance.
