  1. Through the normal glitches of production, this event was successful. Rain stopped the show three times, but all the groups performed to the satisfaction of the attendees. We learned a lot about producing an outside event, which can be frightful in Florida, where rain is an everyday occurrence. The Sons of Mystro were definitely the hit of the day with their magical, electrified violins and accompaniment by Jamel on guitar. Eugene Grey and Company wowed the crowd with jazz/reggae fusion.

    The Parkway Middle School Jazz Band was top notch, performing jazz standards under the direction of Melton Mustafa, Jr. and Lorna Lesperance’s Vocal Ensemble featured several articulate vocalists on “Summertime”, “My Funny Valentine” and several other popular songs.

    Joan Cartwright and Jazz Hotline featuring Bickley Rivera on Steel Pan were joined by Malcolm Black (retired Jazz Band Director at Broward College), Melton Mustafa, Jr. and Eugene Grey on Cartwright’s originals “Love Translation” and “Moving Song” that had the crowd swaying!

    All in all, this was a successful event.
