Mark Twain Jazz Festival, Elmira

Dinny & The All Stars were invited to play for the Mark Twain Jazz Festival in August in Elmira New York. It was a wonderful experience. There were 3 bands and the festival was hosted by Joe Cavelaro and his band.

They closed off the street by a park, had barbaques going, french fries and what ever to eat and lots of great beer. People brought their lawn chairs and sat and danced to the super bands. It was a nice warm sunny day and many people from the Kitchener area and Toronto came. Dinny's band had Canadians and Americans in it. That is why it is called The All Stars. 

 We had a wonderful host who housed Dinny & I and Wayne and Nancy. They were very generous with their hospitality. It was Lynn & Pam Eberhardt. It was a lot of fun and would love to do it again.

Private Gigs

In the summer and the fall we had 3 private gigs. One was a 47th anniversary, another a appriciation day at a yacht club and the other a 70th birthday. They were all fun events and really appreciated being asked to play for our friends and community. The event in Port Credit at the Yacht Club was Dinny's 3rd time and was asked back by special request. It felt good to think that the people enjoyed his music that much.
