      Bunny Berigan Jazz Jubilee
      In Fox Lake, WI on May 15, 16, 17

      Some of the best Dixieland Jazz and Big Band Swing music in the nation will
      take place in Fox Lake, WI on May 15, 16, 17 at this year's Bunny Berigan
      Jazz Jubilee. Jazz musicians from all over Wisconsin and Illinois, plus
      guest artists Bob Schulz and Bob Hirsch from California will converge on Fox
      Lake for a weekend of uplifting, fun loving music.

      The music will begin on Friday afternoon at 4:00 PM with a free concert
      sponsored by "Moose" Mullin, mayor of Fox Lake and owner of Mullin's
      Drive-In. It will take place on the lawn at the Drive-In and will consist
      of a sampling of the music to be played all weekend.

      Everyone can enjoy the music of the Bunny Berigan Memorial Band led by Rev.
      Al Townsend with Don Chesebro of Wisconsin Rapids; and Bob Schulz and Bob
      Hirsch, Wisconsin natives now living in California. The band line-up for
      this year goes on to feature the Beal Street Jazz Band, Vagabond Reeds,
      Larry Busch Big Band, Chicago Salty Dogs Jazz Band, Dixie Doodlers, Monday
      Morning Dixie Band, and Beaver Dam High School Jazz Ensemble.

      A new feature of the 2009 Jazz Jubilee will be wagon rides around the
      community on Saturday morning, showing the childhood sites of Bunny's life.
      This wonderful tour of Fox Lake will be made possible by the Dodge County
      Antique Power Club and historians of Fox Lake, Bob Frank and Julie Flemming.
      The public will be encouraged to come and see the "Fox Lake where Bunny grew
      up".

      As always at this wonderful event there will be delicious food, a CD-Music
      Store, available dance floor at both venues, special souvenirs and decorated
      halls that will send all right into the "best of times with Dixieland Jazz".

      For more information on this Dixieland Jazz event honoring the great Bunny
      Berigan, contact call event coordinator Julie Flemming at 920-928-6094,
