Dear Jazz Fans,

Guarantee that you'll find something you want to hear in the list below!

Another reminder to purchase your tickets to the best Mardi Gras party anywhere around Detroit. Why go to New Orleans to celebrate when the GDJS brings New Orleans to you? On Sunday, February 9, the Cakewalkin' Jass Band of Toledo Ohio, featuring Nicole Heitger on vocals, brings their traditional Mardi Gras music (our 22 year) to the ConCorde Inn Forestré Banquet Center in Rochester Hills (very convenient to M-59 and I-75). A beautiful facility with a real grand piano and huge dance floor where you can wear your shimmy dress (ladies only) and dance the afternoon away. Or just listen and have fun watching. We have a great time at this event. A $28 ticket includes a New Orleans gourmet buffet including dessert, coffee, pop, tax, gratuity and courtesy valet parking. Cash bar. Don't miss out as tickets are limited. Please call Rosemary Newton[masked] to secure your spot! Please see the attached flier below and sign up today!
