The past few months have been quiet on the musical front, but I do have some upcoming performances. The main one takes place on July 11, as I will be playing trombone and alto trombone with the Fog City Stompers for the annual Cline Wine & Jazz Festival. We will be performing two sets – the first at 1:10 PM in the Mission venue, and the second at 3:20 PM on the Great Lawn. Both of these venues offer plenty of seating, and lots of space for dancing. Fog City also will be performing on August 9 at the monthly meeting of the Napa Dixieland Society.
I also will be playing cornet with the Mission Gold Jazz Band at the Union City Veterans’ Home on June 20. This is a private event, but you can catch the band in September at the New Orleans Jazz Society of Northern California and in October at the Napa Dixieland Society.
You can always catch me with the East Bay Stompers every third Thursday at the Irvington location of Bronco Billy’s Pizza Palace in Fremont from 7-9 PM.
