Hi, Dixieland Jazz Fans. This is a special announcment from 
the Creole Dixieland Jazz Band from Springifield, Missouri. 

(Removal instructions at bottom of message.)

When we started playing every Sunday night at Arris' Pizza 
in September, 1999, our purpose and goal was to help Arris' 
become a well-known and popular restaurant in Springfield. 
We achieved that goal years ago and have continued to have 
great times every Sunday night at Arris', but now it is time 
to move on. This past weekend, Sunday, February 27, 2005 was 
our final performance at Arris'. We would like to thank Joe 
and Tani Kremer and Gary Whorton for five and a half years 
of fantastic Sunday night traditional jazz and wish them and 
Arris' good luck in the future. Most of all, we want to thank 
you, all the many fans, who have come out to support live traditional 
jazz for so many years. We sincerely treasure the many friendships 
we have developed. Without your support and commitment, the 
Creole Band would not have become the band it is today. Furthermore, 
Arris' would not be the success story that it is today. Thanks 
so much! But we have even BETTER news...

You can still hear us every MONDAY night at Joey's Only Seafood 
Restaurant. Yes, if you haven't made it over to Joey's yet, 
we sincerely hope you'll come do so NOW! We've played every 
Monday for Joey's Only's "Mardi Gras Mondays" since June, 2003 
and Joey's Only and the Creole Band are still going strong. 
It has become a wonderful relationship between a hot, New Orleans-style 
traditional jazz band and the fantastic food, service, and 
atmosphere of Springfield's greatest seafood restaurant. Come 
out Monday from 6-8 p.m. and have the best seafood in Springfield 
served up cajun spiced, sauteed, battered, grilled, blackened, 
or any way you like it. Mondays feature all you can eat gumbo 
or jambalaya. Don't miss out!

We spent a whole three and a half days without a Sunday night 
gig but we're now excited to announce that beginning Sunday, 
March 20, you can hear the band once again every Sunday from 
5:30 till 7:30 at Mike's Place, 1717 E. Cherokee. Mike's Place 
is just west of Glenstone on Cherokee one block south of Sunshine. 
An establishment known for it's excellent food, intimate atmosphere, 
and live jazz, Mike's Place is a spot you're going to enjoy 
visiting on Sundays. The gang at Mike's Place is almost as 
excited to have the Creole Dixieland Jazz Band as we are to 
be playing there. Thank you, Mike and Nancy Lacey, for allowing 
the Creole Band the opportunity to play at Mike's Place. Please 
mark your calendar, everyone, and we'll see you March 20 at 
Mike's Place.

We are currently recording our third CD and expect a release 
date sometime in the next two or three months. The current 
band is a hot one and we are anxious to get this recording 
wrapped up and in your hands. We are recording the CD live 
at Joey's Only Seafood Restaurant every Monday night from 6:00 
till 8:00. Come out and be part of the fun! See you Monday.

You've heard lots of great old tunes recently: "Tishomingo 
Blues", "Yellow Dog Blues", "St. Louis Blues", "All By Myself", 
"Oh, Didn't He Ramble", "Ice Cream", "Hot Time in the Old Town 
Tonight", "Georgia on My Mind", "My Heart", "Bill Bailey Won't 
You Please Come Home", and lots more. Come request your favorite
