A number of members of the Sound Dunes Swing Ensemble are also participants in other musical endeavors across the Cape. Several of our members are in the Cape Cod Variety Ensemble which is scheduled to perform on Saturday, August 4 at the West Dennis Community Church, 288 Main Street, West Dennis. The CCVE will be performing original works of Kim Moberg, Chev Hardy, Catie Flynn, Kathleen Healy, Ben Andrade, and SDSE’s own Dylan Routhier.
General Admission Tickets, $15, may be purchased at the door or online at https://www.ticketsource.us/cape-cod-variety-ensemble . All profits from the event will benefit the Dennis-Yarmouth Band Program. Refreshments will be available at intermission. The event is presented by the Cape Cod Music Community.
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…
