As many of you know, the ULTIMATE JAM is coming up this Saturday,
July 3rd, in Montreal. But many of you may be asking, `...what is
the Ultimate Jam?'. Well let me tell you!
In short, it's a bas ass workshop, followed by a bad ass evening, in
a bad ass retro club, with a bad ass band, in a bad ass city, during
the baddest of asses Jazz Festival, with the two most bad ass swing
teams in Canada (and anyone else for that matter), going at it, in
one totally bad ass Jam, for the fun and frolic of everyone who
wants to come and watch, all for one heck of a bad ass price!
Now, if that's not clear enough for you, let me spell it out:
1. Bad Ass Workshop: Champions at home and abroad, Porto-Swing from
Quebec City, will be teaching and intense workshop at Studio 88
Swing (home of the Swinging Air Force), at 7383 St. Hubert, between
12:00 noon and 5:00 PM. They will be teaching three (3) classes;
1.Fast Lindy, 2.Aerials/Dips&Tricks, and 3.JAMMIN', all for the low
low price of $55 CDN!! Go and register at

3. Bad Ass Retro Club: Le Swimming - 3643 St Laurent, at Prince
Arthur (Metro Sherbrooke or St. Laurent) - http://www.leswimming.com/
4. Bad Ass Band: Yeah Baby!!! This is RAOUL AND THE BIG TIME, coming
to you from Toronto!! These guys will bring it with fast blues,
jump blues, and slow and saucy blues later in the evening. Just
wait until you see Raoul wade into the crowd with his harmonica,
just shakin' it! Find out all about them at
5. Bad Ass City: Montreal!!! The lights, the sounds, the energy,
that European flava', and the summer people watching... How can you
6. Baddest of Asses Jazz Festival: The Montreal International Jazz

you've never seen it, you have to check it out. Half of the
downtown core is shut down, just for this 12 day event.
7. Two Most Bad Ass Swing Teams: Montreal's own Swinging Air Force
(www.swingingairforce.com) and Quebec City's Porto-Swing

have competed and performed across this continent and others! It's
going to rock!
8. One Bad Ass Low Price: That's right, only $8 cover to this
incredible evening. You heard right, only $8!!! How could you ever
go wrong? And yes, that is Canadian dollars... so you American
folks have no excuse! Come and party with us!

email... :-) )
