WOW—busy, busy, busy! Just got done with two gigs that have restored my faith that the love of big band music is not dead. The JM Band played for nearly 450 people for the Children’s Center Gala followed by Frosted: A Cool Big Band Valentine Ball for over 100 happy dancing patrons! On a personal note, my brother and sister and their spouses as well as my niece were there for the Valentine Ball! Great times! Watch for a ton of great pictures to be posted soon as well as maybe a short video or two! I have nothing but praise for all the crew at the Cosmopolitan Event Center Downtown Joplin for throwing such a great party Saturday. I highly recommend them if you need a place to host an event/wedding reception/party in Joplin, MO.
It made this musical director VERY PROUD that the dance floor was FULL of happy feet all the way to the end of the night! Look for more to come from the JM Band at the Cosmopolitan Event Center Downtown Joplin. (Check them out on Facebook.)
We have the honor to perform again this Saturday (22nd) for a great cause—the Neosho Arts Council SweetArts Gala. Lots of great art to be auctioned and a fun event culminating with the JM Band! This is our 3rd year in a row to be asked back—pretty special I think. As of this writing (19th), tickets are still available. Contact Neosho, MO Chamber of Commerce for more info.
Time to work on this week’s show! Hope to see/hear from you soon! – Bill
