Dear friends,

We've got a really special treat planned for our Friday afternoon Facebook broadcast this week: one set each from three awesome bands from All Nite Soul 2016. The broadcast runs about 2.5 hours, and it's full of forward-leaning improvisation and swing by masters of the art. Just pop on to our Facebook page at 4:00 p.m. EST. (You don't need to have a Facebook account to see the broadcast.) See you there!

Hoping you are safe and well,

James Beaudreau
Director of Media and Communications
