April 2009 supplement

Upcoming shows:

Dear friends,

It seems that I left out a couple important events in my last correspondence, also a couple new events have come up – thus, this April 2009 supplement.

I will be playing with Sentimental Journey on April 16 at the Museum of Florida History, at the R A Gray Building, for their monthly Third Thursday event. We will be playing from 5pm to 7pm, so please drop by, have a listen, take a look at the museum, and for a couple bucks, have some fine refreshment, with beer or wine if you like. Sentimental Journey is an acoustic band playing music from the Great American Songbook with Chip Bloyd on lead harmonica, Brian Smith on guitar, Dave Dickle on mandolin and guitar, and Jim Crozier on bass. We will also be at the Miccosukee Land Co-Op for their annual Spring Festival on Saturday, May 2.

The Jim Crozier Band has been invited to join many great Tallahassee Musicians at the big Earth Day Jam at Bradfordville Blues Club on Saturday, April 18. Learn about the event at . Jimi McKenzie and TD & Kathi Giddings will be with me – and a few more folks will be joining us, too!

I will be playing with Tallahassee Swing for the Knott House Street Dance at 7pm, Saturday, April 25.

The next big Jim Crozier Band show will take place at the American Legion Hall, Lake Ella, on Friday, June 26. I will be back with lots of my friends and at least a couple new songs. This show will feature; Alvin James and the Pretty Big Band with help from the Jones Brothers, the Summit Ladies Choir, and the Bone Dry Band. More about this later!

For any of you folks who might be attending the annual Silver Stars Banquet at the University Center on April 30, I will be joining Steve Sternberg and the band for that gala affair.


Every Tuesday - Be sure to check out Tallahassee Swing every chance you get. The band plays at the American Legion Hall (Lake Ella Drive, Tallahassee) every Tuesday evening from 7:30 to 10 (and has been for coming up on 20 years now). I will be playing bass with them on April 14 and 28.

Recent Events:

Will Barrow dropped in from Nashville to do a songwriter show with the Harvest Gypsies a couple weeks ago. It was wonderful to see him again – we had played together some back in the early 80's – and it was particularly fun to hear him singing his own songs, and Rick, Eddie, Fred, and Art did a fine job backing him up for a set, it was totally worth the trip!.
