Juvae Jazz: A Jazzy Oktoberfest!

This information arrived too late to be included in the October issue of The Syncopated Times:

A “JAZZY OKTOBERFEST” is planned by the Juvae Jazz Society of Decatur, IL, for Saturday, October 8th  at the Decatur Club from 2 to 5 p.m.  Entertainment will be provided by the “Gaslight Squares Jazz Band” from St. Louis, a relatively new, young, dynamic group playing styles of Ragtime and a variety of Jazz and Blues.  They are led by British trumpet player, T.J. Mullner, also playing banjo and singing.  Making up the group  are Jacob Alspach (tenor banjo, guitar & vocals), Jon Weiss (tuba), Matt Sellers (piano), Rudy Torrini (clarinet) and Nick Penne (washboard).  Lots of talent – lots of music.  Plenty of food and drinks prepared by the Decatur Club for purchase.  Tickets, $20.00, may be purchased in advance by mailing a check to: Juvae Jazz Society, P.O. Box 2323, Decatur, IL 62524, or at the door; for reservations contact Phyllis at 217-877-4527 or 217-433-4527; Sandie 217-546-1363.  As always, all profits fund the 42nd Central Illinois Jazz Festival, produced by the Juvae Jazz Society, to be held February 10-12, 2017, at the Decatur Conference Center & Hotel, Decatur, IL.  Visit our website for further information regarding Juvae Jazz Society and the Society’s events.

Last night I put the finishing touches on the October 2016 issue of The Syncopated Times and it was printed and mailed out to subscribers today. I am really pleased with how this one turned out.
