HIGH SIERRA JAZZ BAND PRESS RELEASE
Three Rivers, September 2018
After more than 42 years the HIGH SIERRA JAZZ BAND will retire effective April 14, 2019 after our last performance at the Three Rivers JAZZAFFAIR. Some of us will put our instruments away, others will continue to perform, but no longer as the HIGH SIERRA JAZZ BAND. Even though the band sounds as good as ever we have decided to disband while we still perform at our peak. It is clear that advancing age and associated aches and pains are making it more difficult to continue the hectic pace of travel to/from festivals, concerts and cruises.
The HIGH SIERRA JAZZ BAND had quite a run these 42 years. Not only have we been regulars at all the traditional jazz festivals in the USA and Canada, we enjoyed multiple tours to Europe, Asia, Australia/New Zealand and had the pleasure of performing on numerous jazz cruises around the world.
We, the members of the HIGH SIERRA JAZZ BAND are most grateful for the incredible support received from our fans and sponsors. Please come and see us during the next six months. We are retiring but, thanks to 25 recordings, our music will continue to be heard.
