Microsoft Jumpin’ Jive Orchestra is on Holiday Break

“Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.” ~ Dave Barry

McHaleOn the tenth anniversary of this swing band I note that for the last five, we have always taken October through December off. This band isn’t about making money, it’s about providing a venue for hobbyist musicians to perform. As the band become better known, we have more gigs than we can do in a year. So we get to cherry pick the gigs. The Red Kettle gig, hosted by the Salvation Army and MC’d by Joel McHale is one of those gigs.

Again, a shout out to Ray Guyll, our director for pull this show together. Roger Bare provided the Frank Sinatra vocal stylings. And the cool, new front for this year were created by my wife Suzy.

The Microsoft Jumpin’ Jive Orchestra is a great band to dance to. You can follow us at our blog site or on our Facebook MJJO page. Hope to see you on the dance floor next year.
