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 suitable 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 June 26th (7:30 pm) - Originally we were not going to be having a Guest Performer this evening, however our drummer Steve Schaar needed to take the evening off so local drummer icon Jim Rupp is going to substitute for Steve.  Substitute?  I don't think so!  Jim has extensively toured with the bands of Woody Herman, Maynard Ferguson, Glenn Miller, and Diane Schuur.  He is the drummer on three Woody Herman CDs, The Fiftieth Anniversary Tour, which was nominated for a Grammy Award, Legacy, and Live In London.  -  So, tonight the Famous Jazz Orchestra will Feature Jim Rupp as our Guest Performer.

Next Monday Night, July 3rd - THE BAND WILL NOT BE PLAYING - Have a Happy 4th of July Celebration and God Bless America!

Words of Wisdom From Vaughn

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.  The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
