Ted Shafer's Jelly Roll Jazz Band has been performing at a restaurant in
Martinez every Tuesday for several months. However, last Tuesday (November
28) was the band's last regular appearance. Future Tuesday night
appearances have been cancelled.
Ted is looking for a new venue where the band can appear weekly, probably to
start after the first of the year. In the meantime, the band's New Year's
Eve Party gig in Martinez on December 31 and Napa Valley Dixieland Society
appearance on January 14 are still on.

Also -- you may want to mark Saturday, July 21 on your calendar. That's
the date of the Cline Cellars Jazz Festival in Sonoma County. The Jelly
Roll Jazz Band has been invited to appear there, along with several bands
including the Uptown Lowdown Jazz Band from Washington.
