Suncoast Jazz Festival - Clearwater, Florida


The Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Classic is a fantastic event. This year was our second year and it was so good. It is hosted at The Sheraton Sand Key Hotel in Clearwater and The Marriott Hotel across the street.

There was 15 bands this past year and every one of them was outstanding. There is alway some that stick in your mind for their special performances, like Coronet Chop Suey, Dave Bennet who is a double for Benny Goodmen not only in looks but in his clarinet playing. He is really special to hear. Wally's Warehouse Waifs also a great band to hear. There are many and hard to port out all of their special features. The hotel does a great job of hosting this festival. There are many places to eat and drink and the staff is very helpful.

So if you get a chance to go to Floridia in November around the 19th or 20th be sure to attend this event. They have a great website to look up all of the information and dates. I highly recomend you attend this festival.

Kitchener Jazz Club

Dinny and the band were at the best Jazz Club in Kitchener, Ontario in October and will be there again in December. This is a fantastic place to go. You can't go any where and hear a different band every Saturday. There is a lot of great music fun and dancing.

It is run by Wayne and Nancy Pauli. They work very very hard to keep this great place going. There is a small cover charge but it is well worth it. You can also become a member and then your cover charge is less at the door. It is every Saturday from Sept. to May. The place is well kept and has a great bar. So be sure to come up and enjoy this super music and fun every Saturday in Kitchener.
