I have had a few requests for a link to where I have my non-jazz compositions... here it is: http://www.free-scores.com/Download-PDF-Sheet-Music-jazvampire.htm
Stardust Big Band will be back at Bannockburn Green on July 23, as part of their summer music series. Free and Outdoors- two of my favorite words!
Once upon a time, there was the Deja Vu Big Band, and , coincidentially enough, they played at a place called the Vu. It seems appropriate that since Stardust is comprised of elements of that august ensemble, we go back to our humble beginnings for a gig. The Vu is now known as The Rock House, under different ownership, but the address is still the same- 2624 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago, and on Thursday, March 4th, it'll be "Deja Vu all over again".
The next gig is in! April 11 @6pm at: "This Must Be The Place" in Lemont
I have been contacted by a place down in Lemont appropriately named "This Must Be The Place"... we're looking at either April 11th or 18th- Sunday evening 6-10. I think mort of the guys are leaning to the 11th- now all I need a one rehearsal for touch-up, and we're ready to roll!
