Bill Clark will see you by 6:30pm on Sunday, 10/27 at Flesher-Hinton Music Store for our 6:30-9:00pm special clinic/rehearsal. Andrew, on bass, will not be attending, due to his marching band’s performance at State in Grand Junction.
TRANSCRIPTION ASSIGNMENT: Everyone is required to transcribe a solo from our professional recordings. We’ll continue to listen to all transcriptions this Sunday. Adam is doing “The Mooche,” Jake C is transcribing “Saints,” Jake W is doing “Bourbon Street,” or something else,  Andrew is transcribing “Bill Bailey,” Josh is doing “After You’ve Gone,” Trevor is transcribing “Washington and Lee Swing,” and Xavier is doing a tune which has not been confirmed as of yet. Copland completed and performed his transcription two weeks ago.

Please be sure pp. 8, 9, & 17 in Bill’s Improv Book are prepared. 

Please be sure and prepare: Black Bottom Stomp, The Mooche, New Orleans Stomp, Marchand De Poissons, After You’ve Gone, Wolverine Blues, Big Butter and Egg Man, Blue Skies, I’ve Found a New Baby, Royal Garden Blues, Red Wing, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, Down By the Riverside, Bill Bailey, and All of Me.   
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

These are our available performance dates. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know as soon as possible if you have a conflict with any of these dates. I haven’t received any conflict dates from Jake C, Jake W, or Xavier.
