We are jamming on Super Bowl Sunday!

Our next jam is February 5th, Super Bowl Sunday. Contrary to what you might expect we usually have large turnouts on this date. We expect the same this year and lined up a stellar band just to make sure. UW Platteville director of jazz studies Dave Cooper will lead the jam and play trumpet. He is joined by UW Madison director of jazz studies Johannes Wallmann on keyboard, John Christensen - bass, and Keith Lienert - drums. Johannes, John, and Keith used to play together as a trio back when the Fountain had jazz.

The tune of the week is "Have You Met Miss Jones."

Jam set for continued success

We had another productive meeting today and the jam is now poised for continued success. We have more people involved and helping and Mike Hill is taking over as the day-to-day director of the jam. Mike is on our board and has a knack for keeping track of details and getting things done. Although he won't be at all the jams, he will be busy behind the scenes making sure it is a well-oiled music machine!

Our schedule will now be posted on the front page. Within a week or two we will have it filled out for the next couple of months.
