Wow!! We had another rousing
session. Great music, big appreciative crowd, another huge
50/50 payout, and lots of fun with many dressing up for the
Mardi Gras celebration. Rob McGowan and his Riverside
Dixieland Band wowed the crowd, as usual, with their
enthusiastic music, and a good time was had by all. Thanks
to all the other musicians who attended and participated in
providing great Dixieland music! We are very fortunate to
still have able, and capable musicians that can still play
our kind of music. But that’s what HAGS is all about. We’ll
be looking forward to hearing Hank Bredenberg’s Hot Jazz at
our next session. Don’t miss it!
