[Dixielandjazz] The Wife

Thanks for your comments.

I have been a lurker for about four years and have found this list provides
unlimited amounts of information regarding OKOM.  I recently retired from my
daytime job, play trombone and am definitely interested in finding a lady
who enjoys OKOM, i.e. traveling to festivals and preferable has some musical
ability to play in a Dixieland band.  I have been divorced for 20 years
waiting to find this special someone.  I know this is not a dating service,
however, there is no dating service that matches up OKOM single musicians
that I am aware of.  Any interested lady in about the 50 to 65 age group can
email me off line.

Is there a way to bring singles together at Festivals?  I really like to
dance, however, it would be difficult to determine who the single women are
in a large gathering.

Being from the Black Hills of South Dakota, where there are no OKOM
festivals, finding someone with this interest is extremely difficult as most
do not know about these great festivals, or have ever heard OKOM.

>      I have always found it puzzling, why so many jazz guys have partners
that don't seem remotely interested in the music. I have been playing
(semi-pro), since my teens and am an "old guy" now, but to me music is such
an integral part of my life - that I can't comprehend having a partner that
doesn't share my interest in OKOM.
>      Although currently unattached, I have had the good fortune to have
had 2 partners in my life, that were very supportive of my efforts and
knowledgable of the music - we remain friends, stay in touch and I thank
them for sharing my passion.
>      I also realize that there are wives / partners that just tag along on
a gig, to make sure their significant others behave themselves ;)
