JUST A REMINDER FOR THE WORKSHOPS AND PERFORMANCES TAKING PLACE OVER THE NEXT 2 DAYS –

WE RECEIVED WORD THAT EACH MUSICIAN HAS BEEN GIVEN A COMPLIMENTARY PARENT OR COMPANION FESTIVAL 3 DAY BADGE. SO, IF YOU TURNED IN MONEY FOR BADGES, YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED YOUR REFUND, OR YOU WILL BE GETTING IT ON SATURDAY. I EVEN HAVE SOME EXTRAS, SO I DON’T THINK ANY OF YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE BADGES THROUGHOUT THE FESTIVAL!

Please realize that our Sunday set is a full festival badge performance – no complimentary admissions. But I should have enough extra badges for all family members who want to attend.

The Evergreen Jazz Festival Website has us incorrectly listed as performing an hour set on Saturday. We are performing the hour set on Sunday at 1:30pm on The Elks Patio. They are not going to change the listing on their website. The workshop performance, along with our band performing 3 selections on our own, will take place on Saturday at the Lake House at 1:30pm.

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.
