PRJC A Valentine Date with Dixieland Express
   February 14, 2016, 2pm
Rosensteel Knights of Columbus of Silver Spring , 9707 Rosensteel Avenue, Silver Spring, MD Directions

dixieland express


Celebrate Valentines Day the the PRJC. Dixieland Express will play a variety of music suitable for listening, dancing and even marching to start off our Mardi Gras season. (Bring your parasols and beads and other Mardi Gras apparel.) The band also will play some romance music in honor of Valentine's Day.

The Dixieland Express and its immediate predecessor the Creole Jazz Band was established in 1999 for the purpose of continuing the musical tradition and creativity found in the performance of early twentieth century jazz. The band has played at many different venues over the years such as the Kensington and Bethany Beach concert summer series, jazz clubs, Mardi Gras events and annually is featured at the Natural Foods Expo at the Baltimore Convention Center.

The band will include Merle Biggin on tuba, Les Elkins on cornet and vocals, John Stewart on trombone and Kirt Vener on clarinet, Joel Albert on drums, and Rick Eldridge on banjo, vocals and klaxophone (not pictured). Rick invented and built the klaxophone, a sound effects 'instrument' that is operated with peddles and compressed air producing many realistic sounds such as train and boat whistles, the Klaxon car horn, sirens, and bird calls. These sound effects embellish various tunes on the program such as Alabamy Bound and Sailing Down the Chesapeake to give a few examples.

 Admission:
PRJC members ($20), General admission ($25; $22.50 in advance),
Youth & Students with valid student IDs (Free).

Conservatory Classic JB


Again, Neville Dickie, the UK's foremost stride and boogie woogie pianist. He has delighted audiences all over the world for the better part of 5 decades. Neville thrilles the PRJC in 2013 and 2014, and will once again travel across the Big Pond and bring his superb talents to us, joined by our own exceptional CCJB, whose members include lead Dave Robinson on cornet/trumpet, Brian Priebe on trombone, Gary Gregg on clarinet/sax, Dan Hall on bass, Jeff Reynolds on guitar/banjo, Anders Eliasson on drums, and the wildly popular Ms. Lena Seikaly on vocals.

Directions:: From the Beltway, exit south on Georgia Ave. The church is on the east side of Georgia, immediately south of the beltway (that would be on your left). Going across Georgia Ave. to enter the church can be difficult so, proceed south on Georgia about one block and turn into the shopping center with the Staples Store on your right. Continue thru the parking lot and turn left onto the exit street, Seminary Place. From there, you will be able to safely and easily get back to Georgia Avenue because there is a traffic light at Seminary Place.

 Admission:
PRJC members ($20), General admission ($25; $22.50 in advance),
Youth & Students with valid student IDs (Free).
