We are thrilled to once again be part of the Strollin’ Middleton Jazz Festival, which this year will include the Grand Opening of the Stone Horse Green. Come hear us in the Middleton Senior Center at 5 p.m. on October 7th, and at the Grand Opening of the Stone Horse Green at 10 a.m. on October 8th!
Middleton Jazz will be performing for the Attic Angels Community the morning of September 29, so we will not be rehearsing in the Middleton Senior Center that day.
Middleton Jazz performed to help Vista West celebrate their one year anniversary on September 9, 2022. We played to a terrific, appreciative audience.
We played for the people at Drumlin Residences for the first time on August 30, 2022. It was a bright, spacious venue with a terrific audience. Photo below by Debbie Trexel.
Middleton Jazz had a great time helping the residents of The Jefferson celebrate Mardi Gras this Tuesday! Since we would be missing several members on Thursday, we decided to skip rehearsal this week, but will be back at the Middleton Senior Center on March 10.
Yes, we are back rehearsing in the Middleton Senior Center. We are still wearing masks, but have already booked a couple of gigs. Hoping 2022 is a better year!
Middleton Jazz has decided to pause rehearsals briefly during the fifth wave of COVID-19. We hope to be back in the Middleton Senior Center soon.
Just like the pandemic itself, Middleton Jazz had a roller coaster year! We started 2021 remotely, with a few Zoom meetings and two virtual performances (What A Wonderful World, Topsy) to keep our musical spirits alive. When the weather warmed up, we moved outside to rehearse in Bill Scott’s driveway. Then when vaccines became widely available and the case counts went down, we were able to return to the Middleton Senior Center in June.
We played a few outdoor gigs over the summer, including Stone Horse Green on August 5th, Lakeview Park on August 25th, and Tamarack Trails on September 8th.
With the fourth wave of COVID-19 brought on by the delta variant, we had to move rehearsals back outside in August.
Then in October, under new guidance by Public Health Madison & Dane County, we were allowed back into the Middleton Senior Center with masks, bell covers, and social distancing. All of us are vaccinated and boosted.
Fortunately, our precautions worked, and everyone stayed clear of the virus in 2021. We are hoping for a better year in 2022.
Middleton Jazz will be performing outdoors in downtown Middleton this Thursday, August 5th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. There will be lots of activities, so come on down for some summer fun! (By the way, we will not rehearse this Thursday morning to save our chops!)
This morning we rehearsed in Bill Scott’s spacious driveway for the last time (see below). Starting next week, we will be back in the Middleton Senior Center rehearsing from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. every Thursday. We will also be performing in Hoyt Park from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, June 21, as part of Make Music Madison. Yes, we’re back!
