There is a new venue for Pecos River Brass.  We will at the Z Grill
at 2321 Cross Timbers Road, in Flower Mound, TX on the second
Wednesday of every month from 7-10 PM.  
It is always best to make reservations. 
Their website is www.zgrillandtap.com.

On July 11, we will play a tribute to Duke Ellington and Count Basie, or the Duke meets the Count.       This is a transition for me in that I have never Duke Ellington's band a top notch band.   I respect Duke as one of America's greatest composers, just never enjoyed the "loose" Ellington ensemble.   Well, taking a lot of heat from friends local to around the world, I decided to acquire some of his music (and that of Billy Strayhorn) and learn about it.   We have been rehearsing the music to the point of understanding, and I think we will play some of his charts that you know well, to some you might not have ever heard before.   And of course PRB plays a lot of Basie and you will enjoy the differences in not only their style but performance. 

We suggest that you make reservations for this event.  
zgrillandtap.com There is no cover but you will be
expected to buy a dinner.   Don't miss this.

Next at the Z will be on Wednesday August 8th, Pecos River Brass
will perform a program " The Best of 18 years of Pecos River Brass."   
We will perform our own arrangements from our early years to the present. I'm proud to have written over 100 charts for this band since 2000, and I think a few of them are worth playing again for your enjoyment.   Please join us for an even of our music.   This night will be great JAZZ.
