Thank you Alex.
I think I have what I need now I found out there are festivals for Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Charlie Park, to name a few,Oh and Bix Biederbeck who use to play with the same band as Peter ( Nick Barkley) Breck's father back in the day they just had a big deal for him a few years ago. I let Peter know.
The town is always looking for something that will bring people in for the field days I want to lay it out why not do one promoting the Band Leader who was born and raised in their town. ( wonder how many even know this) I just needed to show that others had things going on for them,and just because they are in a sense in the boondocks dose not mean they could not take advantage of the fact. heck the town in Ohio is saying they are where Kirk will be born at least this has happened.
Besides I know big band/swing music as well as I do the 50's 60's and some of the 70's..I could get into this. esp if we could find some people who know how to do the dances of the time.. I know asking a lot but what can they say ,but *Are you nuts* yep but a good kind of nuts lol
This may fly better then my last idea which I know would have brought in people esp females *my * age... All I wanted was for them to have Randy Mantooth come and speak on being an EMT I know there would have been a run on the females attending.
So all I need now is the day and time of meeting and be prepared for them to say NO!
Thanks both of you for the help.
