Jim Laveroni hosts Percussion Discussion

Being that July 14th is Bastille Day, I probably should have put together a show completely in French, or possibly one about revolution or the guillotine. But really...I might have had a lot of trouble finding 25-30 songs about beheadings. Instead, I started to look up famous quotations about time, and who first said them, and that nearly drove me crazy. "Tempus Fugit"? Maybe first said by the Latin poet Virgil. "Time Waits for No One"? Originally, it seems to have been "No Man", and possibly first said by the character of Death in the play Everyman. "Hurry Up Please It's Time"?

On Thursday, March 26,  the Flying Eagle Jazz Band will be performing and playing Dixieland and New Orleans Jazz. This is a six-piece band comprised of clarinet, trumpet, trombone, banjo/guitar, tuba and drums. Tunes from Louis Armstrong, Kid Ory and other New Orleans greats will be played. Jim Laveroni, host of Percussion Discussion, is the drummer for the band and will take on the dual task of hosting the show and playing the drums for this live performance from 7pm-9pm.
