The concert, which coincided with the Rosefest Ice Cream Social in Central Park, was videotaped by Group W Public Access, produced by Rich Kemp and Brian Brady.

Three days later, the Roseville Jazz Ensemble performed in the Central Park band shell again, as part of the Fourth of July festivities. The Ding-Dongers, the Roseville senior citizens comedy vocal group, began the entertainment. The 4:00 group was "The Original Dixieland Bland" (yes, that's "bland", not "band"), led by Bob Lancette and including Glen Newton and others from the Roseville Community Band, which played at 8:00 p.m., after the Roseville Jazz Ensemble concert.
