Call for interest… DW Poppy Parent/Staff/Alumni band for Jazz Cafe

We have Poppy Jazz Cafe coming up on February 21, 2018 at the Fort Langley Community Hall (tickets will be released after the break) but it is about time that I put together a new group for this event. I am looking to see if there are any parents, staff or alumni interested in “putting the band back together” for this show. I’ve done this with great success at my last two high schools and I’ve been at Poppy long enough that I think it’s time.

The goal is to show that just because you’re not playing full-time any more doesn’t mean that you have to walk away from music completely. If you played band in high school or beyond and are even remotely interested, please email me at so I can get a sense of who might be available. (I may even be able to provide a horn for you if needed.) I’ll send music out once school is back, we’ll have a rehearsal on the evening of January 30 and play 2 or 3 tunes (think early September Jazz Band 8/9) at Jazz Cafe. If you’re interested, or know someone who might be, please email me and I’ll see what we can put together.

Hope to hear from lots of you!
