Upcoming Performances – Closing Out 2016

October 4, 2016

2016 is almost over, but there are a few performances left. It’s been a busy year, including a trip to Fresno to perform in the Mardi Gras festival with the Fog City Stompers, and a visit to beautiful Cline Cellars for their annual Wine and Jazz Festival. But now we’re down to the final three performances of the year.

  • October 15: Devil Mountain Jazz Band, Friends of Jazz, Danville CA
  • December 4: Mission Gold Jazz Band, San Joaquin Dixieland Jazz Society, Stockton, CA
  • December 18: Mission Gold Jazz Band, New Orleans Jazz Club of Northern California, El Sobrante, CA
  • The December 4 gig is tentative, as I may have a family commitment. But go hear the band anyway – they’re fun!

    Devil Mountain on October 15

    October 4, 2016

    I’ve been taking a break, more or less, from music as I spend my days playing coach for my offspring’s youth team. However, I received a very complimentary call the other day, requesting me to sub with a band I have long highly admired, the Devil Mountain Jazz Band. This group has long been one of the premier traditional bands in the Bay Area, and they are a fixture on the festival circuit.

    I initially thought I had a conflict but we managed to make things work, and so I shall be playing trombone with Devil Mountain on Saturday, October 15 at the Danville Grange Hall from 1:30 – 4:30 PM. If you’re in the area, don’t miss some good jazz!

    Updated Band Websites

    December 29, 2014

    As those of you who follow this blog know, I currently hold down the trombone chair in the Fog City Stompers, and the second cornet chair with the Mission Gold Jazz Band. These are my two regular bands, though I also play with Pat Dutrow’s Jazzmeisters and the East Bay Stompers as well as subbing with a number of other traditional and swing bands in the Bay Area. With 2015 looming, I decided to do a little publicizing.

    Mission Gold’s online home has long been hosted on a site called JazzDance.org. However, JazzDance’s webmaster recently passed on, so we have decided to move. After some research, we chose Reverbnation as our new home, mainly due to the many tools it offers for bands. Mission Gold’s leader, trombonist John Soulis, and I spent some time a few weekends ago transferring data from the existing site, and I am pleased to announce that the new site is now live. It contains our upcoming schedule, member biographies, sample MP3s for downloading, and even a few YouTube videos of the band in action. The new site can be found at the following URL: http://reverbnation.com/missiongoldjazzband

    . Stop by and say hello!
