Our first meeting is on Wednesday November 7 in the West Auditorium with a social hour at 5:00 pm, dinner at 6:00 pm and Entertainment at 7:00 pm
Dinner will be Chicken Jardinière with garden vegetables and rice pilaf. Tossed salad, Rolls & butter. Lemon Pound Cake with whipped Cream.
A new group called “All Jazzed Up” will entertain us. The singer, Jo Ann Shifflet , sang for us last December as part of the group “Saguaro Sunset Trio”.Her new group offers Torch Songs also known as Jazz and Swing Ballads from Tin Pan Alley. Jo Ann is familiar with many styles of music and plays many instruments. She is drawn to folk, bluegrass and country music of the easy listening variety and also to “Torch Jazz” because of the emotion and exact precise phrasing of this style including jazz standards.
Steve Smith is an accomplished musician whose guitar prowess is second to none. Steve studied music at the University of Arizona. And can be heard in many musical productions around the Tucson area. He can be heard weekly in a country band called “Flipside” at the famous Tucson Maverick.
