Subject: Greater Detroit Jazz Society Jazz-o-Gram: Live Jazz the Week of July 1, 2014

Dear Jazz Fans,

Please check with your favorite venue if there is any doubt about their playing due to the 4th of July holiday. Many will not be happening but I hate to delete them and have to add them all back in next week. Now if I had that secretary that I need, she could add them back, or maybe “HE?”

All of the events sent to me by musicians are not listed here but will be in our GDJS newsletter, out this week.

Have a super 4th of July, and remember what this holiday is all about – FREEDOM! We are so fortunate to live in this country … and have the best jazz anywhere! Now get out an support ...
