Please meet at Westminster Elks Lodge (3850 Elk Drive) by 3:15pm. Please wear your maroon/slacks outfit. We perform from approximately 3:50 until 4:15pm. Parents are always admitted free. Friends and family members are always welcome! We will leave the club around 5:15pm and car pool to dinner, so please bring food money. Then we’ll car pool to rehearsal, which will go until 9pm. Matt will join us at our rehearsal from 7 until 9pm.

Vets – Please realize that all late trip payments must be turned in, at the very latest, by Sunday June 29th.

New band members (except Jake C, who is already paid), please bring your June dues on Sunday.

Vets – Please bring any past due trip payments, if you have not already done so. Also, just a reminder that the CD jacket must be sent to the duplicating company on Monday, so the deadline for any corrections is Sunday night!

It’s important that all families participate in our King Soopers fundraiser, if at all possible. This fundraiser greatly contributes to our financial aid, uniforms, supplies, and trip expenses. Dottie will have the gift cards available for purchase on Sunday at the Elks Club. Please bring $25 in cash, or a check made payable to the Denver Jazz Club, for each card you would like to purchase. Remember, you just use the card, same as cash, at King Soopers and Loaf & Jug (great for gas purchases!), each time you shop. Then we get 5% of the sales – you can’t beat it! You still earn your points and gas discounts as long as you use your King Soopers Rewards Card, along with the gift card. Thanks for all your support!!

At Sunday’s rehearsal, we should have a drum audition (please keep your fingers crossed!), and then we’ll need to prepare for the June 20th gig at Tamayo, along with the Make Music Gig on the 16th Street Mall on Friday. We’ll also need to decide on the 10 tunes for Tyvon’s Graduation Party on June 29th.

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

Please work really hard and be ready for Sunday’s performance! I tried to get a sub drummer, but I had no luck. We’ll perform the set as we rehearsed it, with Cameron on washboard.
