I am really pumped about our gig the the Joplin’s Children’s Center Gala – “Party at Gatsby’s”. We get to perform the music we love in a great venue/atmosphere for a WONDERFUL cause! What more could you ask for – well I guess I wish ALL our fans could be there!
I just checked on ticket sales and there are a limited number seats available – call 417-623-2292 to get your reservation. We always have a great band and now we add a new dimension with a special guest artist Les Lankhorst who will be performing many of the great “crooners” classics in the show. Our featured soloist, Susan Wizer, and Les also have a couple of special duets planned. You can check out Les at www.leslankhorst.com.
Guest sideman for this event include Northwest Arkansas’ finest jazz guitarist Roby Pantall. He will be with the band and be part of the combo performing from 6-7 during cocktail hour. Also joining our already fine trumpet section are two of the best players in the four states and my good friends- Scott Harris and Todd Hastings. Having played lead for many greats including Johnny Mathis and Wayne Newton, let me tell you these guys can blow!
I hope to see many of you there! It all starts with cocktail hour at 6:00, followed by dinner and special activities including a live auction. The JM Band starts “Swingin’ Hard” at 8:45 on February 8th at the Downstream Casino and Resort in Joplin.
Also don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE – Neosho “SweetArts Gala” supporting the Arts in Neosho, MO February 22.
Later – Bill
