The new year is off to a good start as I head out for the drive to the Richey Suncoast theatre. At 2PM, Frank Parsons and his big band will begin playing some old time favorites and we will be tapping our feet and singing along with so many of the wonderful arrangements. He does an awesome job bringing us up to date with tidbits of information on the various arrangers and lyricists. I have a fondness for the saxophone as its sounds seems to have a magical effect on me, and so upon hearing the soloists play with so much emotion, the feeling is incredible.
All of them together bring years of talent and experience for our listening pleasure, month after month, so much so that when we get close to the last performance in May, I become a little sad that my once-a-month visit with them will be on hiatus until October. I especially miss Fred Nunes playing and conducting, and also telling a joke or two. He manages to keep us all happy and chuckling.
And so Ms Millie is off to the show.
Have a good day everyone………
