After a long, pandemic-induced hiatus, we were grateful to return to Capitol Lakes on May 18, 2023. The Grand Hall was lively and the audience was enthusiastic!
Oak Park Place Nakoma
Here is Les Hoffman belting out “Basin Street Blues” for the residents of Oak Park Place Nakoma on Friday, March 10. After getting snowed out of rehearsals for most of February, It felt good to be playing together again. Thanks to Deb Trexel for the photo.
Rehearsing and Performing Again
Yes, after the holidays we’re back at it! In fact, our next performance will be on Thursday, so we will not rehearse on January 19 to save our chops for a gig at Vista West. We will be rehearsing at our usual time in the weeks between, however, and everyone is welcome to come to the Middleton Senior Center and listen.
Brief Winter Break
Our winter break has come earlier than we expected due to the snowstorm. We had hoped to run our holiday program at our Thursday, December 15, rehearsal, but the Middleton Senior Center will be closed due to weather. We will perform it at two venues in the coming week. However, we will not rehearse on December 22 or 29. We hope you will enjoy the holidays with friends and family and we’ll see you next year!
Down by the Riverside
As usual, the audience was terrific at the Stoughton Opera House on November 7, 2022. Here is a small sample from our performance in that beautiful venue.
Middleton Jazz at Stoughton Opera House
This coming Monday, November 7, 2022, Middleton Jazz will be playing in the Stoughton Opera House at 3:00 p.m. as part of the Stoughton Senior Center’s Music Appreciation Series. The performance is free and open to the public, although they will ask for free-will donations.
There should be plenty of room to spread out. It is a beautiful venue with lively acoustics that should add to the performance.
