We’ll see you at our special early pre-super bowl rehearsal by 1:00pm on Sunday, 2/3.
The set orders and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads page. I’ve uploaded the set list for our performance with Jim Fryer on Sun, 2/17. Please be sure all tunes are prepared and memorized completely for that performance! Sell as many of the $8 tickets as you can – it will bring the trip cost down for each individual who makes some ticket sales!!
 Please remember that this will be the final rehearsal with our full band before the 17th.
Please also be working on: Sing Sing Sing, Come Fly With Me, Muskrat Ramble, West End Blues, Minnie the Mooche, My Walkin’ Stick, Water from an Ancient Well, My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It, and Sheik of Araby for Sunday.

Please work really hard and be ready for tomorrow’s rehearsal, the 2/14 special clinic, and the February 17th performance!
