See you on Sunday, October 13th, by 6:30pm, at Flesher-Hinton Music Store for our regular 6:30-9pm rehearsal. 

Adam, Jake W, Josh, Andrew (2nd half), & Xavier – Please remember to bring your October dues, since they were supposed to be turned in last Sunday.

TRANSCRIPTION ASSIGNMENT: Everyone is required to transcribe a solo from our professional recordings. We’ll listen to all transcriptions this Sunday. Adam is doing “The Mooche,” Jake C is transcribing “Saints,” Jake W is doing “Bourbon Street,” 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 last week.

Please be sure pg. 6, pg. 8, pg. 9, & pg. 16 (top progression) are prepared. 
Please prepare these selections for Sunday: The Mooche, Black Bottom Stomp, and Amazing Grace, in particular. Be sure that Amazing Grace is memorized, since we will perform this selection on October 20th.
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.
