with 3 jam sets.  Jam Set musicians are welcome!

Since 1959 Ted Shafer has led both two-cornet jazz bands and smaller New 
Orleans style combos under the "Jelly Roll Jazz Band" name.

Few contemporary traditional bands can match the breadth and scope of 
the JRJB repertoire: obscurities associated with Gertrude "Ma" Rainey, 
Tiny Parham, Johnny Dodds, King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton and the 
Dixieland Jug Blowers; compositions by Lu Watters and Turk Murphy, and 
originals by young revivalists such as Sonnanstine, Giomi, Robin 
Wetterau and Sanford Newbauer.

Among its credits, the Jelly Roll Jazz Band has hosted the strictly trad 
Suisun City Jazz Festival, and has performed at the Sacramento, Santa 
Rosa Jazz, Concord, Great Falls and Puget Sound Festivals, and at the 
New Orleans Jazz Club of Northern California, Oregon City, Santa Rosa, 
and Napa Valley Dixieland Jazz Societies.  A smaller New Orleans version 
of the Jelly Roll Jazz Band had a long running gig at Le Beau's 
Restaurant in Martinez, and, starting in January 2007, can be heard 
every Saturday night from 7-10 PM at the Asian Paradise Cafe (414 Ferry 
Street) in Martinez.

The full two-cornet version of Jelly Roll JB (normally 8-9 pieces) will 
be playing for us in Napa on the 14th.

Come early, as this band always draws a large audience!

Spacious Dance Floor.  The lodge has Food and a Full Bar.

One month later, NVDJS will feature the San Francisco Feetwarmers on
Sunday, February 11th,  2007 from 1-5 PM at the same location.

Valley Dixieland Jazz Society, P. O. Box 5494, Napa, CA 94581 or you
