Newsletter October 2016
This is the first issue of our Newsletter. Why? Recently we have had a turbulent time. So the idea came up to put out a newsletter twice a year to keep our fans, business relations and all other jazz afficionados informed about The Storyville Jassband.
We hope you like it!!
2. New website
We decided to make a new more modern website with more possibilities for us but also for our relations. We kept our “house style” though, which comes forward in the colours black and yellow. There is a permanently changing photogallery as well as a webshop where people can buy our music. The address hasn't changed: www.storyvillejassband.info
We have produced 11 CD’s over the years. Unfortunately not all of them are available anymore. But the good news is that we are planning to set up a webshop where people can download our most popular songs.
4. Ruud Nieuwenhuijzen passed away
After an long period of illness Ruud died on 20th July 2016.
He was the leader, manager and cornet player for over 40 years.
Even when he couldn’t play anymore he still managed the band and kept the Storyville going.
We will miss Ruud, his warm personality, his drive and musicality.
5. Change in management
Peter Dobbe (trombone) has taken over leadership and management after Ruud died.
6. Michel Muller new trumpeter
When Ruud stopped playing, Peter van de Geijn took over on cornet. After a period of 1/1/2 years he left and Michel Muller replaced him.
Michel is a well known trumpeter and fine musician with a very good reputation.
