Hi Folks,

A good friend of mine, Duncan Branom, who is a professional Jazz musician, has decided to open his spacious home in Happy Valley for a Jazz house party.  He's held a couple over the summer, and with much interest, he's happy to continue with them.  Duncan has played with some very recognized names, and is amazing with the brushes.  

With his many friends in the Jazz community, we're fortunate to see some very talented musicians.  On Nov. 2nd, he will be joined by David J. White, Steve Christopherson, and special guest, Margie Gibson.

Margie will be singing your favorite Jazz tunes, requests gladly taken. She has a fabulous voice, check out her videos below. There will be a $15 admission to take care of our cherished musicians, refreshments, and wine.  You will enjoy this intimate venue, great company, and first class Jazz.gets you great company.  Music from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Seating is limited, so please RSVP to reserve your seat!  I'm going to limit this event to 40 for now, and may be able to adjust that number after consulting with Duncan.

Feel free to come a little earlier, around 6:30, and mingle.
