Dixieland Jazz Every Saturday – Will it ever be back? Not likely!

1:30 to 4:30??????????

It still is the best music anywhere!

GUESS WHO? I’M STILL HERE! I KNOW, IT’S ALONG TIME SINCE SEPTEMBER
WHERE DOES ONE START?

THE HOCKEY SEASON IS OVER, I THINK. CAN’T REMEMBER WHO WON, AND I REALLY DON’T CARE, BUT IT WAS NOT A CANADIAN TEAM. HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED.

THE BASKETBALL SEASON IS OVER AND A TEAM WITH A LOT OF 6ft. 9in PLAYERS WON.

BASEBALL, SUCH AS IT IS STILL GOING. WOW.

FOOTBALL HAS STARTED, FOR THOSE TEAMS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN INFECTED WITH THE VIRUS. C’MON “BILLS”, WHAT WAS THAT 4TH WEEK ALL ABOUT?

AND WHAT ABOUT THE MUSIC?

HERE WE ARE MONTHS AND MONTHS INTO COVID 19, AND SO MANY MUSICIANS AND MUSIC VENUES ARE SERIOUSLY SUFFERING. SEVERAL PLACES HAVE EVEN SHUT DOWN PERMANENTLY. WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT?

WE REALLY HOPE THAT ALL OF YOU GREAT MUSICIANS, GUYS AND GALS, WHO HAVE ENTERTAINED US FOR THE LAST 40 OR 50 YEARS ARE FARING OK, AND MAKING DO DURING THIS MESS. WE TRULY MISS ALL OF YOU.

WILL WE SEE, AND HEAR YOU AGAIN? ONLY TIME WILL TELL. WE CERTAINLY HOPE SO. IN THE MEANTIME, BE CERTAIN THAT YOU ARE ALL IN OUR THOUGHTS OFTEN. WE PLAY YOUR CDs. WE WATCH YOU ON “YOU TUBE”, OR “FACEBOOK”. BUT IT’S NOT THE SAME.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MEMORIES.

AND WE CERAINLY MISS ALL OF OUR LOYAL FANS. WE HOPE YOU ARE ALL KEEPING WELL TOO. IT’S A STRANGE TIME, BUT WE CAN GET THROUGH IT AND HOPEFULLY START AGAIN, SOMEWHERE, SOMETIME.

KEEP WELL. BE SAFE.


 

HOW ABOUT A LITTLE SMILE TO MAKE THE DAY BETTER

1.     I GOT MYSELF A SENIOR’S “GPS”. NOT ONLY DOES IT TELL ME HOW TO GET TO MY DESTINATION, IT TELLS ME WHY I WANTED TO GO THERE.
2.     DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH IS LOOKING FOR COUPLES MARRIED 7 YEARS OR MORE TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ON SOCIAL DISTANCING.
3.     BECAUSE OF COVID, FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 1945 THE NATIONAL SPELLING BEE IS CANCIL - - - CANCUL - - - CANSEL - - -. IT’S BEEN CALLED OFF.
4.     I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE ACT INTELLECTUAL AND TALK ABOUT MOZART, WHILE THEY’VE NEVER EVEN SEEN ONE OF HIS PAINTINGS.
5.     THIS YEAR WILL BE THE FIRST YEAR WE’RE NOT GOING TO HAWAII BECAUSE OF COVID 19. NORMALLY WE DON’T GO BECAUSE WE CAN’T AFFORD IT.
6.     IF SOMETHING IS THROWN AT THE PRESIDENT DOES THE SECRET SERVICE YELL – “DONALD DUCK”? (SORRY)
7.     THE OLDER I GET THE EARLIER IT GETS LATE.


 

AND I’LL REPEAT THE FOLLOWING FROM THE LAST NEWSLETTER 

I DON’T KNOW HOW ELSE TO SAY IT .        

THE JAZZ CLUB’S FUTURE??

WHO KNOWS?

WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING, THE WEARING OF MASKS, AND ALL THE PROTECTIVE HEALTH REQUIREMENTS THAT WE MUST USE, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY WHEN, OR EVEN ‘IF’, WE WILL EVER BE BACK TOGETHER TO ENJOY THE MUSIC WE HAVE ENJOYED FOR SO MANY YEARS.

ALL WE CAN DO IS WAIT AND SEE, BUT MY FEELING IS, IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE NEAR FUTURE - ONE DAY, WEEK, MONTH, YEAR??? AT A TIME?

WE CAN ONLY HOPE.

BE SAFE. KEEP WELL. LOOK AFTER YOUR FRIENDS.

 

Wayne and Nancy
