New Years 2016... One More Year!

2015 Is Now Completed And 2016 Is Coming!

Remember: Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go. - Brooks Atkinson

Welcome To New Years Eve 2016 (Page One)

So we are headed to the Long Beach Airport Marriott Hotel to dance with Tracy Wells and the Big Band! Then we did the Rose Parade on the second. Join all the fun!

Did You Know? - Big Band refers to a jazz group of ten or more musicians, usually featuring at least three trumpets, two or more trombones, four or more saxophones, and a "rhythm section" of accompanists playing some combination of piano, guitar, bass, and drums.

Where did 2015 go?

The Marriott is adjacent to the Long Beach Airport so it is quite handy to get to! Most everybody was there by about 5:00 so the parties can begin!  We started in #810 with the Roberts, Zaitz, Branders, Will & Iris, and a pop-in by Sandy and Bob!
