PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR OUR REHEARSAL ON SUNDAY, February 5TH: Please arrive at Flesher Hinton Music Store by 1:15pm.

CONGRATULATIONS on a terrific performance at Wednesday’s Mile High Jazz Festival! The judges loved you guys!!

Please remember to bring your listening CD’s to Sunday’s rehearsal.

Also, does someone have a Volume 1 CD of ours from the Bull and Bush Pub?

We’ll continue working on the half step exercises on pg. 9. Please also prepare pg. 19 (2nd exercise).

Our goals will be to decide on what tunes to play at the Bull and Bush Pub on the 12th with Daniel, and to come up with the complete set we will perform with Eddie Erickson on the 19th.

The updated set order sheet and all audio recordings can be found on the Downloads page

Please also prepare the following for our rehearsal: When I Leave the World Behind, New Orleans Stomp (lift the solos), Blue Prelude, Black Bottom Stomp, Ain’t Misbehavin, and Just a Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody.

Please work really hard and be ready for Sunday’s rehearsal.
