The 5th Annual Jazz on the River is just around the corner....coming up on Saturday evening, June 7th. Last night we loaded up the seven of us, Lucia at the wheel, Marlea, Michelle, Jamie, Marcia, Kimmie and I, and headed over to Carson City to see Jakki Ford perform with the Mile High Jazz Band. And I thought we try to fit large bands on our small stage in the River Garden...... how they managed to tuck the 30 or so musicians into the small space at Comma Coffee http://www.commacoffee.com/ I am not sure, but it was amazing. We visited with Jakki during the breaks and we are excited about her upcoming appearance. While she won't have the entire 30 piece ensemble behind her on June 7th, she is bringing a talented combo of artists that are sure to thrill us with the cool sounds of Jazz.
This is our annual fundraiser for the Relay for Life event here in Fallon. We like to think of it as the "Kick Off" Event for the upcoming walk. Various teams will be on hand to sell luminary bags to honor loved ones, and of course Ron & Bob will be back with their fabulous BBQ with all the trimmings. This year we are continuing last years hit event, the Wine Tasting Gazebo. For the small fee of $5.00, you can taste the 6 wines that we will be selling by the glass in the bar area. (100% of this goes to Relay for Life) Tickets for the concert will go on sale Saturday, May 17th, and continue until we sell out. Hope to see you there! Susan
