Please arrive at Flesher-Hinton Music Store by 6:30pm. We have Kahner’s drum re-audition; the other Conifer HS player decided not to audition.

Please bring your May dues and past due trip payments, if you have not already done so.

New Band – It’s very important that you check all our dates out right away. We expect you to be at everything now, unless it specifically says Vets. Please let me know as soon as possible if you have a conflict with any of our dates as soon as possible.

This rehearsal is extremely critical, since we’re preparing for 3 upcoming performances (everyone), and a recording session (vets only).

Vets only: For Wednesday’s recording session, please prepare: Big Butter, Down by the Riverside, Ham and Eggs, Ice Cream, Marchand De Poissons, My Walkin’ Stick, Over the rainbow, Red Wing, and What a Wonderful World. Other tunes that have been recorded previously, but we could consider recording again include all selections on our set list except: It Don’t Mean a Thing and St. James Infirmary. We did record 14 selections last year. I believe the total max time is 74 minutes, but we have to include 4-5 second interval breaks between each track. Also, if I don’t get any CD cover design entries from any of you, we will go with the same design that we’ve used for the last 3 recordings. we’ll just need to select a new color jacket.

All dates and driving directions can be found on the Event Calendar page.

The set order and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads page
