The People's Chicken was closed by Bailiff's order March 18 and is still closed today (21) at 4pm. We assume that's the end of People's Chicken so we suggest the regulars and others meet Saturday March 24, 4-7pm at The Rose & Crown, 2335 Yonge St. just north of Eglinton, to have a chat and check it out.

The Climax guys think it might be very good for Saturday matinées, with its dance floor, easy sightlines and reasonable prices. Some Climax Jazz Band members will be there so we may play a few tunes to impress the management. If you agree, we'll make a proposal The Rose & Crown can't refuse. Meanwhile we'll make sure that people turning up at People's Chicken on Saturday know where we are !

It is a sad day to learn about The People's Chicken (formerly The Chicken Deli for many years).  It ran as The Deli for so long and the band and fans were always happy.  The old place could have stood a little paint and puddy but the change it went through was not for the best.  The only benefit was the enlarging of the dance floor.  There were many old fans, of many years there that stayed away, because they did not like it.  We feel sorry for The Climax Jazz Band who played there for a long, long time.  It was home to them and their followers.  Well fans keep looking for a new place and help Chris keep things going.  There has been 2 shocks for him and the band in 1 year.

In the mean time keep on jazzin.
Cheers Dinny & Do
