JUST A REMINDER FOR THE WORKSHOPS AND PERFORMANCES TAKING PLACE OVER THE NEXT 4 DAYS1

For the Evergreen Jazz Festival Educational Workshop – Please invite any of your jazz musician friends to join us, since we have financial support to have them participate for FREE! Also, so far, I have Cameron, Matt, Kris, Tyvon and Josh planning on staying up in Evergreen with Colton. Please let me know if anyone else would like to stay up in Evergreen with Colton or the Simons’. Car pooling/commuting to and from Evergreen is a huge problem at this point. Only Josh is confirmed in Colton’s mom’s car on Thursday. The other 4 of you need to let me know if you need a ride back to Evergreen on Thursday. It may not be a problem, since we don’t need to bring the drum set for KUVO. Friday shouldn’t be a problem at all, since we’re not commuting back to Denver. Saturday is another difficult situation, since we need the drum set. Can anyone, or a parent, drive the musicians back to Evergreen that evening? Also, please let me know if your parents would like to take advantage of the half priced festival admission badges that are being offered to workshop participants. The brochure has been uploaded to the website with all the prices and badge choices. There is even an option to only attend our Saturday 1:30pm workshop performance at the Lake House for just $5.00 for immediate family members. Please realize that our Sunday set is a full festival badge performance – no complimentary admissions. The Sunday only half priced parent badge runs $35.00. I will need any additional badge/ticket orders and payments at the start of the workshop on Thursday morning, July 26th. 

Our new CD is here! Everyone got 1 complimentary CD on Sunday. If you would like more CD’s, please bring payment for any extras you would like to purchase.
