The band loves its audiences, and the audiences love its blues, stomps, 
rags, marches and spirituals.  Thirty-six years and still going strong 
is this very traditional mainstay from the San Francisco area, born of 
inspiration from the great San Francisco groups of Turk Murphy and Lu 
Watters.  The Gas is popular worldwide, with successful European and 
Asian tours, cruises, recordings and visits to virtually every festival 
in jazzdom.

The band's normal lineup consists of:

Phil Crumley, leader, on cornet
Dave Lewis on tuba
Warren Perry on drums
Bob Murphy on soprano sax
Bill Carson on trombone
Pat Dutrow on banjo
Rich Owens on piano

One month later, NVDJS will feature Black Diamond Blue Five Jazz Band
on Sunday, July 8th, 2007 from 1-5 PM at the same location.

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