I'll be back at the Balboa Rendezvous dance event this year, but this time I'll be subbing on trumpet with a fabulous band from Seattle - Glenn Crytzer's Syncopators. I got to hear his band last April and they were really swingin'. I look forward to working with him and his fine musicians. Incidentally, the Balboa Rendezvous dates are Saturday, March 31 in San Diego and Sunday, April 1, in Newport Beach. For more info visit www.2plyswing.com.
