Hey Steve,
   thank you, thank you, thank you for this list -- I'm going to be in New
Orleans for work from Jan 15-19 -- so I'll be checking this all out -- I
haven't been in over 10 years so I'm really looking forward to it...
    By the way, I caught Bobby Scann playing trombine with Buddy Grecco's
show about Peggy Lee and told him that you mentioned him on the DJML...he
raved about you and your band and said you guys are really awesome!

P.S. We had an abundance of riches for New Year's eve gigs in Las Vegas -- 
but I had pneumonia and had to miss them all! Ken Peplowski played at the
Stardust with the Benny Goodman reunion band, the Kinda Dixie band was
playing with Connie Stevens at the Gold Coast, the Vince Falcone Orchestra
(he was one of Sinatra's conductors) was at the Suncoast, Connie Francis was
at the Sahara -- and that's just the tip of the iceberg!
