Dan last brought his friends to Tri-State in January 2022; today we see the return of Dan leading and playing trumpet, with Vince Giordano on tuba and bass sax, and Jim Lawlor on drums; also joined today by Randy Reinhart on trombone and Arnt Arntzen on banjo and guitar. Get ready for "an oasis of joy!" (in the words of our reviewer after Dan's last appearance)

Let's Jam!

Jam with us in our annual All-Star Jam with Dave Robinson and his Conservatory Classic Jazz Band!

Sunday, July 21, 2024 at 2pm
Community Arts Center
Wallingford, PA

The Conservatory Classic Jazz Band, a top Washington, DC-based group, has played for Tri-State conservatoryClassicJazzBandand regularly hosts Potomac River Jazz Club jam sessions.

Dave Robinson - leader, cornet, trumpet
Gary Gregg - reeds
Brian Priebe  - trombone
Rick Rowe - guitar, banjo
Dan Hall - bass
Brian Alpert - drums, washboard

The Details
A jam tune selection list, including keys, is listed below. To keep things fresh, this year’s list does not include tunes that were played at 2023’s jam. Most of the  list is drawn from Bob Rawlins’ The Real Dixieland Book (Hal Leonard) and page numbers are listed for those.

Select tunes that you know well. If a tune is not in The Real Dixieland Book and you need a lead sheet, email Dave at jazzteacher@wap.org and he will provide one. Copies of The Real Dixieland Book will be available on the bandstand for those who need to refer to it.

If you’d like to play, PLEASE PRE-REGISTER to be guaranteed a spot playing with this great band. You'll tell us your name, email, telephone, your instrument(s), and two selected tunes from the list that you’d like to play, plus two alternates.

PRE-REGISTRATION closes on June 2. The final tune selections and instrument assignments will be made ahead of time by Dave. The set list showing the tunes and assignments will be sent to all pre-registered participants by June 23. 

  • Musicians should bring their own instruments (piano and drums are provided)
  • Pre-registered sit-ins should sign in at the door, and will be admitted free of charge. Free entry does not extend to family members and friends
  • Dave will call up the sit-ins to play, per the distributed set list. Please be ready to take the stage and play when it is your turn, and leave the stage promptly at the end of your assigned tunes
  • Walk-in jammers will also be admitted free of charge and will be invited to sit in if time allows
  • Priority will be given to those who pre-registered
  • If you have CDs of yourself that you’d like to sell, a designated table will be provided for that purpose.

We look forward to hearing from you!
