Good Job Steve.

Speaking of exposing this music to younger people...my Party Gras Dixieland
Band played last Saturday night at the pre-season Des Moines Buccaneer's
hockey game as people passed by on their way into the arena.  Mostly younger
people.  Many stopped to listen and from what I could see, enjoyed OKOM.
Probably the first exposure for many of them.

This was the first time this has been tried at a Bucs game and the
management loved it. Oh yeah, we made a decent wage too.  I'm negotiating a
contract for the 2003-2004 hockey season.
