Thank you for making our 15th anniversary an incredible night!
I want to thank everyone who came to our 15th anniversary show last Wednesday night at Trumpets Jazz Club! What an amazing night! We knew we were excited about playing, but when all of you came in and filled up the club...well...there was a lot of love in the house...and we felt that! It makes a huge difference in the performance of the music when musicians know that the audience is diggin' the music...the electricity of that appreciation just flows through the band..and it makes all of us dig in even deeper to the music....so thank you for that.
Also, a big thank you once again to photographer Chris Drukker for all of these photos, they are just wonderful! You can view the rest of them here.
I'd also like to thank The Montclair Times, Joan Finn and George Wirt for including me and the band in their "Women In Jazz" article, which also included interviews with pianist Gerri Allen, and vocalist Melissa Walker.
And.. a thank you to Tim Wilkins of the Star Ledger for getting the word out, as well!
All of us in the band are so appreciative of your support!
We also want to thank Enrico Granafei and Kristine Massari, owners of Trumpets Jazz Club for giving us a home and making it so easy for us to come play the music!
A big thank you to Judy De'Angelis...otherwise known as "Judy..at the bar!"...for holding it all together! And all of the staff there as well.
Another big thank you goes to my son Chad Moser, who came in and subbed for Natascha at the last minute!
Thank you to Allwood Community Church for giving us rehearsal space.
And a huge thank you to Dennis Connors for creating the new video on us...which you can see here.
As you can see, performing a concert of music involves not only the band...it also involves all of these folks who help to make it happen, and of course a very wonderful audience......yes...there was a lot of love in the house that night!
