October News

Notices: (Published: Nov. 1)

November Members Meeting has been moved to Monday, Nov. 10th due to elections held at City Hall. Read on, because we seriously need you there!!!

Sadly, our Monthly Membership meetings have not been well attended, averaging 6-8 people (most of which are the Board), leaving us for the 4th month in a row where we could not vote because we did not have a quorum, so nothing could be approved. This is an extremely sad ratio, considering we have an average of 100-150 attendees at the Jazz Jams each month.

We bring you great live entertainment. This takes planning and suggestions from all of you. We strongly need your support on future events and are always looking for new ideas. The meetings usually last about one hour. There will be no December meeting nor Jazz Jam. We meet at the City Hall on A1A at 7:00 p.m.

We are in the process of uploading videos from our fantastic performances at the October Jazz Jam. This process may take a few days, so please return soon to view these outstanding performers!!

Pictures from our September & October Jazz Jam will also be uploaded completely within a few days. Sorry for the delay.

Anyone having any videos or pictures taken with a CAMERA ONLY from any Jazz Jam, past or present, or even interesting "long-ago" memories to forward them to my email at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We'll get them posted.

Linda Cole Sings at August 31, 2014 Jazz Jam


As you all may be aware, it takes a village to operate this organization. Our monthly meeting attendances have been so low that we cannot vote on important future issues without a quorum.

Please attend our next meeting, Monday, October 6, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the St. Augustine City Hall on A1A.

YOUR VOTE COUNTS as well as your attendance. On the other hand, our attendance at the Jazz Jams have been OUTSTANDING. Thank you for that support. We are glad to present these events to you.

You won't want to miss this event!

Linda Cole

This month we are so excited to present Ms Linda Cole "The First Lady of Song". Linda has sung professionally since she was 3 years old.  Her family group, "The Singing Coles", are part of Illinois music history. Linda branched out into rhythm and blues appearing with groups such as The Spinners, Count Basie and many others. Linda is acknowledged as having the "smoothest voice" in the business and Linda was there when great songs were written.  She can talk about the authors first hand and has the original scores, many written just for her.  Backing Linda will be Ray Masso on keyboard, Ken Organis on drums and Ed Organis playing bass.
