Swingin' Jazz at CHEZ TED

This is a plugged-in session for advanced players only. We play Swing, Jazz Standards, pop... what is called the great American Song Book:

This is not a session for a room full of acoustic guitar strummers. But if you sing well, play sax, trumpet, trombone, drums, keyboards, bass, fiddle, harmonica, oboe, etc... (any instrument really) or can solo on the guitar, we would love for you to bring something new to the party.

The house is equipped with a P.A., microphones, drums, keyboards, guitar and bass amps, and a digital projector hanging from the ceiling to project charts on the wall.

You are encouraged to post PDF lead-sheet of your favorite songs. Adobe Reader projects very sharply on the clubhouse wall. Also attach a video link so we can learn the song.

The number of RSVP's available is limited, so please RSVP only if you will actually attend, and delete your RSVP if you decide not to attend. If it looks full, get on the waiting list and I will try to accommodate you. However, if you RSVP and do not attend without cancelling your RSVP, you may be barred from future events. You are cheating other members who may want to actually attend.

Finally, fill out your biography. Folks who hide their identity and faces will not be invited to my home.

My email address is "[masked]" and phone # is[masked], I will send the address and directions to all R.S.V.P.'s a day or two prior to the event.

    Ted, sorry to interrupt, but I see you just uploaded new files. I have been getting error messages for ALL the files for the past three days. It's really random; sometimes some will open and others not, then later I can open the ones that previously gave error 404. Right now, I can't open any of your new files (or anything else). My question is whether this is just me, or if other people are having this issue. I've written to Meetup; they said their ability to troubleshoot problems was affected by the DDoS, and they will get back with me. Could you try to open some random files and let me know if you are able to?
