Join the Festivities!

Join us at our next club meeting on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at the Press Box at Westminster Lanes (info below) for an entertaining afternoon of traditional Jazz and Swing featuring the COYOTE HILLS JAZZ BAND.

Also, Band Leader Alan Shelton will be on hand to get the afternoon started with the Directors Set plus ‘open jam’ sets during the afternoon. Musicians bring your instruments and get involved! The Tailgate Room is there for you.

Please note: for this month’s club meeting, Revelation Classic Jazz Band will not appear at Westminster. They will be playing an afternoon concert at America’s Finest City Dixieland Society (Lafayette Hotel, 2223 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego) and will return at the next club meeting on Sunday, May 19th.

  • Live Music from 1 PM to 5 PM.
  • Bar Service.
  • Large Dance Floor.
  • Big Daddy’s Cafe, offering delicious food and snacks.
  • Tailgate Room — musicians, bring your instruments for a jam session. Sign in with the music director, Alan Shelton.

St. Paddy’s Day Fun

Our St. Patrick’s Day Cookies and Cakes were baked by our own distinguished culinary experts, notably:

  • Dodo Stowers
  • Daryl Stokes
  • Annie Breau
  • Brook Nesbit
  • Priscilla Hockins
  • Sandy Eberlein
  • Teddy Siegele
  • Debby Schmus

All the treats were a joy to behold and to eat. Thank you, Daryl, and thank you, Ladies, for making this happen!

Membership Drive

Please RENEW your membership as soon as possible if you have not already done so. Membership renewals were due on January 1st.

“Membership Drive” is continually on the agenda of your Board of Directors. How else is our club and the music we all enjoy to be kept alive. We ask that you concentrate your efforts in bringing new members to the Club. Keep the impetus of our club and the beat of the music energized! Spread the gospel and bring your friends and families to visit our Club at Westminster.

Consider this: Together with our donation to such as the San Diego School Band, visiting bands and venue room rental, every other dollar of your dues payment is returned directly to you through our buffets (4 times per year) and through our meeting attendance prizes and snack bowls. With the exception of 20 Honorary Life Members who have performed exceptional service to our club, there are no free passes.

Even the Revelation Classic Jazz Band — who extend themselves tremendously for the benefit of the club (and their deep love of the music) — pay dues. They receive no reimbursement for travel expenses or anything else.

As John Hockins says, “Keep Classic Jazz alive. If we don’t, who will?”.

Good seasonal wishes to you all.
