March 20 Sunday Session @ A.G. Hall

This Sunday's jam/swing/blues/dance session is at A.G. Hall, 707 Huasna Rd,, Arroyo Grande. So don't goto the Pismo Vets Hall this Sunday! Else, the schedule is the same. 11AM: 3 Jam Sets; 1PM: Main Act Set 1; 2:30PM Intermission Act; 3:30PM Main Act Set 2.

This month's session will be a crowd pleaser. The Intermission Act is The Creole Syncopators, featuring Valerie Johnson. Their traditional jazz feel includes washboard. The Creole Syncopators are the main reason we won first prize in the 2015 Pismo Beach Clam Parade. Formerly of Big Brother & The Holding Company (after Janis Joplin), Valerie Johnson provides an old-school bluesy will think you are in New Orleans, not Arroyo Grande. Our main act is the ever-popular Dos Pueblos High School Band from Goleta, CA, directed by Les Rose. A truly professional act with a swing band feel. They played to rave reviews and standing room only at last year's Jubilee. This year we booked them for another set (last weekend in Oct. 2016!). Les Rose is a Grammy-nominated jazz educator in the Santa Barbara area for the past 23 years. Come to hear the music! At the Arroyo Grande Hall, 707 Huasna Rd.
