… Socials:

Yes, that’s plural. Join us on Saturday 9 April for the Vice-Presidential Social at the JW Marriott, Maurepas. We’ve booked the room from 6:15 to 7:45 but I imagine we’ll start spilling over at the conclusion of the VP Address that starts at 4:05 p.m. Here’s the big news…music provided by BeJae Fleming with Jackie Blount.

BeJae Fleming learned her craft as a songwriter and performer in Texas playing the famous club scenes in Austin and Dallas. Along with Trailer Records labelmates Greg Brown, Pieta Brown, Bo Ramsey, David Zollo, Joe Price, Brother Trucker and others, BeJae has helped create the roots-influenced “Iowa sound” in Americana music. Jackie Blount studied the French horn, receiving her bachelor’s degree in music from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Long inspired by performances of such notable bassists as Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Clark and Charles Mingus, Jackie took up electric bass five months before her recording sessions for BeJae’s second CD, Navigating Limbo, and has accompanied BeJae’s performances ever since. Get there early…folks from Iowa and Ohio are saying you won’t want to miss this!

And following the Business Meeting on Sunday, 10 April please join us for more discussion, good times, and Creole Charcuterie. (I think that includes Andouille, Alligator, and Crawfish along with the usual suspects.) The business meeting starts at 6:15 in the JW Marriott, Ile de France II. We’ll aim to wrap up the business by 7:15 to let the good times roll.
