Congratulations to our 2 newest members of the DJC Youth All-Stars: Copland Rose, Trombone – junior at Castle View HS, and Andrew McLean, Sophomore at Evergreen HS!

We’ll see you by 3:30pm for our performance on Sunday, 5/5. Please wear your maroon band shirt, khaki slacks, dress socks and dress shoes. Please bring a wire music stand, all your music, some clothes pins, and a medium jacket, in case it turns colder.

We’ll be on the south side of 16th St., between Arapahoe and Curtis Streets, in front of the Federal Reserve building. We will be closer to Curtis St, diagonally across from Rock Bottom. We will unload equipment on the southwest corner of 16th  and Curtis Streets. There is a parking lot just north of 16th, on Curtis St, on the left hand side (garage down ramp), just past the Rock Bottom Restaurant. We usually get dinner there, so they validate our parking voucher (ends up being less than $2 usually).
Trevor – please bring the accordion, keyboard, patch cord and any additional keyboard cables/cords/accessories.
Colton – please bring your drum set. We’ll be on concrete, in case you need your carpet.
Andrew – please bring your mini amp, pick up and patch cord.

Vets, please remember that your balance of trip Payment #3 is due on Sunday, if you haven’t already paid.

I did email your balances to each of you already.

We have nine auditions/re-auditions on Sunday, so please be sure you’re prepared to perform “Washington and Lee Swing.”

Also be working on: My Walkin’ Stick, Down by the Riverside, & When the Saints.
