Had a great week this week and this weekend. On thursday we had at least 6 high school kids sit in with us and play with the EJS. If there had been a big band around when I was growing up, I would have been there every time. We had about 20 people show up to hear us practice!!!Played for the Swheat market again for lunch on saturday and then played with the combo on Saturday nite for the Mardi Gras Party at the Episcopalian Church. Those folks know how to party. Best crowd we have played for in a long time. Patti was back with her voice and everyone was "on". As Phil said, every gig with this group is guaranteed to be interesting and that we never play anything the same way twice. We even played (by request ) The Days of Wine and Roses as a DISCO tune!!!! We had a conga line going during St Thomas. What a group. Today was praise band again and tomorrow nite its playing for the Annual Dinner for the Police Chiefs Association at the Airport Hilton with the Peachtree Jazz Edition on Bari Sax. What a great week!!!
