After a very successful season
in our new Boca Raton venue, Iím very pleased to announce
that I have signed a new lease agreement with Bob Phillips,
the Shrine Club President.
We could not be more pleased
with this venue. Bob Phillips and his staff have made us
very welcome and all our members and musicians love the
venue. In addition, we have gained several more attendees
from the Boca Raton area.
We will begin our 2018
Ė 2019 season Sunday, September 23rd,
so please mark your calendars for that date. Also please
check this website or our Facebook page for information on
which band will open the new season.
Have a wonderful
summer and I'll see you in the fall.

What a grand and glorious finish to another
great HAGS year. Would you believe 38 years in existence? 38
years of the type of music we all love. And thanks to all
our faithful followers, and all the musicians who have made
our success possible.
Thanks also to Glyn Dryhurstís Dixieland
Band, who know what to play, and how to play it! They always
put on a great show. And thanks too, to the musicians who so
faithfully show up. With no backup reed players, or trombone
players, our old faithful Larry Kendzora came to the rescue
with his clarinet, soprano sax, and his trombone mouthpiece
so he could play my horn. He saved Pete Theodore and me from
trying to play four sets. And it was great to see and hear
Vic Andrews after too long an absence.
Iím looking forward to the kick off of our
next season, so be sure to mark your calendars for the
fourth Sunday of September, and check our website.
