Bart Weisman hosts a monthly JazzJam on the third Sunday of every month at The Riverway Lobster House in Yarmouth. It starts at 4 PM and runs until 7. There is no cover charge. I was finally able to check it out (with Bob Aumueller and his wife, Jeanette, and my wife, Lynda) yesterday and had a fantastic time. Bart had a top notch rhythm section (Bart, Ron Ormsby, and Fred Boyle) who were augmented by many local instrumentalists and vocalists on a continuous rotating basis. Several of our Sound Dunes family were there including Mark Borgmann, John Shaw, and Doug Ricciardi. You can go and perform with the gang or you can just go and listen to some excellent live jazz.

On May 23rd, The Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble (SDSE) performed as one of several musical entertainment groups at the “Jammin’ @ the Rep” Fundraiser at the Cape Repertory Theater in Brewster. Funds collected during the event were contributed toward Lower Cape Outreach Council (LCOC) programs – HopeWorks, Pay It Forward, and Smart Money – designed to improve the work lives and earning potential of client households from Harwich to Provincetown.
This was the third straight year that SDSE has been asked to perform for this fundraiser by Larry Marsland, President of LCOC. It is great to know that our music is appreciated to that degree and SDSE band members were enthusiastic about performing for such a worthy cause.
Photos that were taken at the event by professional photographer Bill Pomeroy (Pomeroy Photography and Graphics) of the various performers at the event are posted at http://www.pomeroy-photo-graphics.com/…/CapeRep-jammin-at-t…
Here are a few photos that we took during the SDSE performance from the May 23rd event….
The event was quite a success!!
On May 6th, The Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble performed at a private event for the Southport Village Community in Mashpee. This was basically a reschedule of a similar event that was originally scheduled for early January but had to be cancelled because of a winter snow storm. Southport Village is one of the most active adult communities in New England and this was pretty clear to all band members based on the amount of dancing that was going on during our performance.
Also performing with us in the community’s Bonvie Ballroom during the event was the a capella singing quartet, “Who’s the Boss”, who performed several upbeat oldtime favorites in 4-part harmony.
Our band and all vocalists had a great time and apparently so did the Southport residents because they have invited us back for another event in November.
