Jam for Joe–2nd Annual

 

Last year’s Jam for Joe was the vision of my good friend Jan Singleton, just before she passed away.  She was hoping this fundraiser for Joe’s M.I.L.L. (Musical Instrument Lending Library)  would be an annual event, so today was the second Jam for Joe.   It wasn’t as packed as last year, and there were fewer musicians, but it was more of a jam.

When I arrived, Lisa and Richard from the Roosevelts were playing and were excellent.  I didn’t get any pictures, but here they are on CBC Music.

Roger (?), and Terry Snider.  Terry runs Joe’s M.I.L.L. and used to play in a band with Jan.

Richard Burgmann at the far end.  Tom Savage with the beard and I don’t know the rest of the musicians.

This was kind of a magical moment, when the brass instruments, who had been standing at the back, decided to march up and join in on the tune.

Dympna (?) and Tom Savage.  I don’t know who the middle fellow is.

Ever seen a plastic magenta trombone?

This beautiful house has been here a long time.  You see it in the old pictures that they show on the Vintage Kingston Facebook page.

I figured that some of my readers may have had the experience of arriving at KGH Emergency.  I did it twice, with my gall bladder, but that little pest is gone now.  Yay!

Compare this to the verdant canopy of the summer.   😦
