Folks continue to pack the beautiful Clintonville Woman's Club, 3951 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio every Monday evening to hear the Famous Jazz Orchestra playing their hearts out for all who care to listen.  Must be they found the "best kept secret in Ohio!"  Under the direction of the famous Vaughn Wiester, the band has been getting together every Monday night (except when Columbus gets horrible weather, or  competition from a Buckeye football game) for going over 20 years.  The FJO is a twenty-two piece orchestra made up of volunteer professional musicians who simply love getting  together to "jam and blow the good ones." 

Tonight, Monday, March 19th (7:30 pm) - We will not be having any Guest Performers.  Instead, expect LOTS of good ol' BIG BAND TUNES - proving that in the 50's "rock n roll" wasn't the only thing happening!

Up On Deck

Monday, March 26th (7:30 pm) -  Our Guest Performer will be vocalist Rachel Azbell.

This past week our "band" director, Vaughn Wiester, was a guest trombonist with the Jazz Arts Group (Columbus Jazz Orchestra.)  Attendees all agreed it was a wonderful performance and presentation by our esteemed leader.  (Thanks to Jim Loeffler for these pictures.)
