The Fog City Stompers have been playing since 1985.  They were origi-
nally assembled by the leader, Tom Belmessieri, from members of a
nighttime dance band, but there have been personnel changes over the
years.  They currently play at various establishments around the San
Francisco bay area and at private affairs.  In addition to the great
old standards, they offer original compositions and new arrangements
performed in the traditional Dixieland jazz style.  Please come up and
say "hello" to them.

The musicians of Fog City Stompers include:

Tom Belmessieri, Leader, on Trumpet
Brian Cardello on Trombone
Jim Ritz on Clarinet
Steve Bradbury on Tuba
Rich Owens on Piano
Adam Roderick on Drums
Bill Cooper on Banjo

Spacious Dance Floor.  The Elks has Food and a full bar.

One month later, NVDJS will feature the Golden Gate Rhythm Machine on 
Sunday, November 10, 2002 from 1-5 PM at the same location.
