Guest Pianist, Vocalist Join Alamo City Jazz Band

For Sunday, Aug. 1 Dixieland Concert in Austin

     Pianist Bob Pilsbury from Boston and vocalist 
Carol McGiffin from Santa Fe will appear with the 
Alamo City Jazz Band in concert on Sunday, August 
1, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Donn's Depot, 1600 W. 
Fifth Street in Austin.
     Both guest artists met the band during its 40 
years of travels, playing and preserving the 
original American musical art form, Dixieland 
jazz.  They join the band on special occasions, 
such as that weekend's concerts at the 
International Apple Festival in Medina, Texas, 
and a charity concert for the Cibolo Nature 
Center in Boerne.
     The band also will appear at the September 19 
Jazz Alive Festival in San Antonio.  For the 
sixth year, the band recently played a series of 
concerts in New England. Its newest CD is Alamo 
City Jazz Band Live from Boston.
     The band is fronted by San Antonio dentist 
Chuck Reiley, noted for his "tailgate style" of 
trombone playing.  Its other regulars include 
Larmon Maddox, cornet; John Page, soprano sax; 
Bob Black, banjo; Budge Mabry, drums; and Doug 
Frantz, tuba.
     The band plays authentic Dixieland standards, 
newer tunes in the jazz style and tunes Chuck 
Reiley has composed.
     The public is invited to this subscription 
event for members of the Austin Traditional Jazz 
Society.  Tickets at the door are $10.00; 
children under 12, free.  There is free parking 
and a cash bar.  The room will be smoke-free.
