A Great Mardi Gras Party!

Just wanted to let you know that KJ and I had a great time performing with Puddin’ River Jazz Band at the Portland Dixieland Jazz Society Mardi Gras Party yesterday!  A high-energy afternoon of fun tunes, great dancers that stayed on the floor for all three of our sets, and an outstandingly good time.  We appreciate those who came out from Vancouver to see us perform–thank you!  It was nice to see some familiar faces out in the crowd. 

If you could not make it to the party, here is a little taste of what we did.  This is a live recording taken yesterday of the popular swing tune, “You Turned The Tables On Me.”  I am doing the vocal, KJ is at the piano, and we have the wonderful Puddin’ River Jazz Band providing the rest of the instrumentation.  Barry Benson on clarinet and sax, Ron Hayes, band leader on trumpet, Wayne Travillion on trombone, Steve Boden on guitars, Larry Burnett on bass and Jack Dawes on drums.  Please visit our “Hear Us Perform” page for the audio!
