This Sunday July 11th The Monterey Hot Jazz Society guest band will be 
the Alcatraz Angels . The Alcatraz Angels Jazz Band is a great authentic 
two-beat New Orleans-style Dixieland band, with a hard-driving rhythm 
section that makes its music irresistible to our dancers and keeps our 
listeners clapping and tapping their toes. The popularity of the 
Alcatraz Angels extends well beyond local venues. Jazz clubs and 
societies from all over California have invited the Angels to perform, 
and the band has been a frequent guest of festivals in and out of 
California. In fact, Tony has just turned down an engagement in Beijing 
China because he had already signed on with us and didn’t want to break 
a commitment.

It must have been tough to turn down a Beijing Beer Festival gig, with 
Five Star Hotel accommodations, air fare, food, tours, international 
publication, with actor's and actresses and everyday about 10,000 
listener's. Tony rationalizing said “Oh well, I got to thinking, who the 
hell wants to drink Chinese beer on hot summer days in China”

Our Jammers plan on playing the following tunes:
I Found a New Baby Keeping Out of Mischief Now
Dallas Blues Georgia
Down in Jungle Town Margie
Melancholy Blues Way Down Yonder in New Orleans
Battle Hymn of the Republic Someday You'll be Sorry
Long Way From Tipperary How Come You do me Like You Do
Big Butter and Egg Man Jazz Me Blues
