posted on our HAGS Facebook page, “We had an excellent HAGS
session at our May meeting with the enjoyable sounds of Lew
Willie & the Snapdragons. It was a great day for trumpet
fans. Lew Willie had Steve Ahern on trumpet and we had two
great trumpet players with the sit-ins – Jack Siegel and Tom
featured band was a Swing band, not a Dixieland band, and it
was done at the suggestion of some of our members. There was
a good audience reception, and good participation such as
the responses to Cab Calloway’s Minnie the Moocher. Any
feedback to me, or other Board members would be appreciated,
whether it’s pro or con.
not least, thanks to all the sit-in musicians. We are very
short on reeds, trombones, and drums. We rely on Larry
Kendzora, who does all, including cornet. To all Dixieland
musicians out there – we need you!
don’t miss our June session. We’ll have Hank Bredenberg’s
Hot Jazz band playing a great variety of some hot Dixieland
standards that aren’t often heard.
Cornet: Glyn Dryhurst, Jack Siegel, Tom Swayzee
