In the on going effort to get more OKOM groups to try and get this music back 
into the mainstream, some of you bandleaders should be checking out these 
kind of events and try like Hell to get you acts included, if you don't try you 
can bet they will not come looking for you.   Ya Gotta Go where they are, and 
take some Mardi Gras beads too.

At least Dan Alexander will have a few nights to catch a lot of different 
music styles.
