The One O’Clock Lab Band has toured internationally with great success over the decades, performing in Russia, Mexico, England, Australia, Portugal, Finland, Norway, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Poland, and Thailand, where the band performed for the King of Thailand. His Majesty chose to “sit in” with the band on that occasion. Most recently the band toured the major jazz festivals in Europe including Montreux, Vienne, North Sea, and Umbria. The band has performed by Presidential invitation at the White House, joined on stage by Duke Ellington and Stan Getz. The One O’Clock Lab Band frequently appears as the headliner at jazz festivals, major music conferences, and concerts hosted by numerous fine arts series, colleges and high schools across the United States, Canada, and around the world.

Alumni of the North Texas jazz program are virtually everywhere in the professional music industry as performing artists and jazz educators. There is also a strong local connection to UNT, as many Valley natives (Paul Shaghoian, Scott Englebright, Larry Engstrom, Gene Doi, Kent Hillman) have participated in this remarkable jazz program.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the FCC Music Department. Sponsors also include 90.7 KFSR and JazzFresno.
