We've been very busy this summer. We played a gig at the Village retirement center on June 29. The residents really enjoyed the music. We played Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Woody Herman, etc. The residents told us that we brought back a lot of memories from their youth.

We also played a gig on July 18 at Sweet Dream Ice Cream store. It was National Ice Cream Day. It was very hot outside but the ice cream was just what the doctor ordered after a gig like that. Thanks Sweet Dreams for having us.
