Hi Nancy!

It is possible that John Allred will be the trombone player for the
All-stars as well. Allan Vache (who is our musical coordinator for this
event) did not specifically tell me so but it is probable. John is also
scheduled to appear with "Dem Bones" with his dad, Kevin Rupp, Randy Morris,
Phil Flanigan and Howard Elkins.
Nancy & Brett:
I did not schedule John Allred to play any sets with our all-star band, since 
at the time, I did the schedule, we were not sure the John would be able to 
play the cruise. His first commitment is to Harry Connick, and he wasn't sure 
of his schedule at the time. I did, however schedule one set of the all-stars 
with Bill Allred. I will tell you that, if John would like, he's more than 
welcome to join us on one or more of the sets we'll be playing.
I expect that many such surprises will occur during the week. Jam sessions 
and sitting in will be encouraged among the players hired for the cruise.
If you have already purchased your cabin, my suggestion is don't miss any of 
the sets. You never know what will happen.
