Meeting Notes

Rock 'n' roll night last week gave some of us an opportunity to try out some new tunes, and to demonstrate the versatility of the accordion. Joe Kulick started us off with a set of British Invasion tunes, and Lee Paulson followed with three Beatles tunes. Leone with Mara and Clare Cherkasky played a couple of Zydeco pieces, plus a 1950s hit; and Peter DiGiovanni ran us through the history of rock 'n' roll in a "name that tune" game. Toward the end Jim Vandelly joined in. Jim also volunteered to present a program at the December meeting.

NOW TO GET DOWN TO BUSINESS ...

The December 3 holiday concert is almost here, and we need your help. The program could use a few more musicians, and we also need volunteers to help set up and clean up. We're counting on YOU, our members and friends, to spread the word about the concert and to bring your family and everyone you know. The concert and potluck are a lot of work, so we need everybody to help out. If you'd like flyers to hand out, please let us know.

Here's how the signup sheet looks so far -- rather lonely in most categories. Please let us know how you can help by replying to this message.
