Great job at Saturday’s Drums Along the Rockies Performances – the crowd loved you guys – congratulations! $74.23 in tips, too – not bad!!

A SPECIAL WELCOME TO OUR NEW PIANIST, TREVOR SMITH!! HE IS A JUNIOR AT EVERGREEN HS!!! WELCOME TO THE ALL-STARS, TREVOR!!!!

PLEASE BE PREPARED FOR OUR REHEARSAL ON SUNDAY, JULY 8TH: Please arrive at Flesher-Hinton Music Store by 5:30pm. PLEASE NOTE THE NEW, EARLIER REHEARSAL TIME (THIS IS THE LAST SUNDAY WE’LL BE STARTING AT THIS 5:30PM TIME).

Mason, please bring your drum set on Sunday.

Josh, please bring your upright bass on Sunday.

Please remember to bring your listening CD’s on Sunday.

Please be prepared to play all your major scales around the circle of fourths. We’ll also do pg. 6 in the improv book – Major triads plus 6th’s around the circle. Please practice so you can do it all from memory.

We will rehearse for the Botanical Gardens July 14th performance set.

Also, we will need to select the selections for Sunday’s Club Performance, with no cornet lead. Dallas, Alex, Matt and Mason can select the selections, since this will be your final appearance at the Denver Jazz Club.

The Thursday, July 26th KUVO set will need to be decided with reed/trombone/tuba leads throughout that hour long radio show, since Alec and Rico will not be performing that night.

We need to rehearse the following tunes: Panama, Maple Leaf Rag, Just a Closer Walk With Thee, Bourbon St. Parade, Indiana, Bill Bailey, It Don’t Mean a Thing, St. James, and After You’ve Gone.

The set order and reference recordings can be found on the Downloads page 

Please work really hard and be ready for Sunday’s rehearsal.
