I always liked the description Brady gave the band once that they played
"jazz with an attitude"!   Will certainly miss them!

Fellow Listmates,
   As you have read in a previous post the Wooden Nickel Jass Band is
folding its tent at the end of this year.
   If you have never seen or heard them you have missed something really
special. They have injected a feeling for OKOM into every performance
that has reached across the boundaries and pulled in new fans that would
never have listened otherwise. To put it bluntly they are DIFFERENT!!!
Each and every member is an artist and consummate performer at what they
   In the remaining time that they will be performing as a group, if you
are able to attend on or all of their gigs I urge you to do so. You will
not be sorry. They are and have been one of the West Coasts finest.
   For those of you who are not able to attend I believe Bob still has
quite a few CDs taking up space in his garage that he would be more than
willing to exchange for that long green. At least that is what he told
me the last time we spoke. Once again you will not be sorry. Every one,
including Brady's is a Gem.!
