Congratulations on a terrific performance on Sunday! Jim Fryer really enjoyed playing with our band!!
We’ll see you by 3:00pm for our early rehearsal on Sunday, 2/24. Please wear your maroon/slacks outfit. Our rehearsal will conclude at 5:30pm. We’ll then car pool to the Bull & Bush. Please bring dinner money as we’ll eat between our sets at the Bull and Bush Pub – the kitchen is finally open again! We’ll dismiss from there at 9pm.
Please remember to bring your European Tour airfare on Sunday, if you have not already done so. 
I still need completed, signed minor employment forms from all band members except Tyvon, Alec and Josh. Please bring them on Sunday.
Be sure to “LIKE” us on Facebook at facebook.com/DJCYouthAS. We still need some more “likes” in order to receive all the benefits of Facebook!
As you know by now, our big benefit concert will be on Sunday, June 9th from 3 until 6pm at Ziggies. You can start selling tickets immediately. On Sunday you received 2 copies of a concert ticket tracker form, and several posters. Please always fill both sheets in as you collect ticket money. That way you will turn in your weekly sales with one sheet and keep the second one for your records. Anyone turning in ticket money each week will receive a new blank sheet for the following week’s sales. Please remember that no actual physical tickets will be handed to the customers. A paid guest list will be provided to the Ziggie’s ownership in advance of showtime, similar to how they do it at Dazzle’s Jazz Club.
The set orders and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads pageI’ve uploaded the set list for Sunday’s Bull and Bush performance. Please be sure all tunes are prepared and memorized completely for that performance! 
 
Please also be working on: Ham & Eggs, Marchand De Poissons, Sing Sing Sing, Muskrat Ramble, West End Blues, Minnie the Mooche, My Walkin’ Stick, Water from an Ancient Well, My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It, and Sheik of Araby for Sunday.

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