For those interested, Sac à Pulses' summer tour has been finalized.
Here's what we got :

Robert Guercio of the 307 Jazz Club (more info
<http://www.theind.com/news3.asp?CID=-1948283406>) is organizing a
'French Night.' In addition to the regular jazz community, he is doing
a publicity push to the franco-tongues. The french owned local wine
shop and a french restaurant will organize a cocktail (more info
with cheese from Auvergne (more info
before the concert. Should be lots o' fun. We show up on the 29th

horn? It would really help me out.]
July 31 -- Norman, OK
It will be great playing in the jazz capital of the ... oh, no, ... in
a sister city of Clermont-Ferrand. We will be part of the Summer Breeze
Concert Series (more info

August 2 -- Phoenix, AZ
Our man in the sun Joe Hopkins and the Arizona Classic Jazz Society

have a great time if there are 5 or 500. We fly in mid-afternoon on the
1st. I have a UCLA buddy living their who is the best BBQ man on the
planet. Hey, I'm no slouch myself, but this guy can make a BBQ dance
(to be anounced
details to follow (about the concert, not the BBQ).
August 4-7 -- Orange County Classic Jazz Festival (more info
Need I say more. We close the Thursday night four-band kick-off bash.
Either, they are saving the best for last or they don't think that many
will stick around that late. Then, we got our normal sets (more info
