President’s Message 

Our June 25th Jazz Session will be the last one at our current venue. The American Legion Post 142 in Pompano Beach has been adequate but a little small with a very small stage for the musicians. When we return in September, after our Summer Hiatus, we will be in a very nice new venue. It is much larger and has a good size stage and better acoustics. However, please don’t miss our last session at the American Legion before our Summer Hiatus. It will feature Hank Bredenberg’s band – HANK’S HOT JAZZ. 


The new venue starting September 24: 

Boca Raton Shrine Club - 601 Clint Moore Rd. - Boca Raton, FL 33487

I apologize in advance to our Miami-Dade members since the new venue is further north. However, if you are already travelling on I95 it should only add another 10 minutes to your journey. Since the new venue is so nice, I hope you will consider it worth the extra time. 


Directions from I95:

Exit I95 to Yamato Rd and go west

Turn right on Congress Ave

Turn right on Clint Moore Rd

The Shrine Club will be on the left 


Alternate directions from I95:

Exit I95 to Yamato Rd and go east

Turn left on NW 2nd Ave

Turn left on Clint Moore Rd

The Shrine Club will be on the right




Jazzin'It Up - By C.B. Pope - Music Director



As posted on our HAGS Facebook page, “We had an excellent HAGS session at our May meeting with the enjoyable sounds of Lew Willie & the Snapdragons. It was a great day for trumpet fans. Lew Willie had Steve Ahern on trumpet and we had two great trumpet players with the sit-ins – Jack Siegel and Tom Swayzee.” 

The featured band was a Swing band, not a Dixieland band, and it was done at the suggestion of some of our members. There was a good audience reception, and good participation such as the responses to Cab Calloway’s Minnie the Moocher. Any feedback to me, or other Board members would be appreciated, whether it’s pro or con. 

Last but not least, thanks to all the sit-in musicians. We are very short on reeds, trombones, and drums. We rely on Larry Kendzora, who does all, including cornet. To all Dixieland musicians out there – we need you! 

Please don’t miss our June session. We’ll have Hank Bredenberg’s Hot Jazz band playing a great variety of some hot Dixieland standards that aren’t often heard.

 Sign-in Musicians: 

Trumpet, Cornet: Glyn Dryhurst, Jack Siegel, Tom Swayzee 

Trombone: C. B. Pope 

Clarinet: Pete Theodore, Larry Kendzora
