Roseville Big Band
Song List for the Edison High School Class of 1954 50th Reunion

June 26, 2004
Led by Glen Newton

We were to set up at 7:00 and play from 8:00 to midnight, in Ballroom B in Carriage Hall, at Earle Brown Heritage Center, 6150 Summit Drive N., Brooklyn Center; wear black and white. However, because the city van, which we thought we had reserved, was in use by someone else, we had to make last minute alternate arrangements to transport our equipment, and after the equipment arrived at 7:45, we were able to start playing at 8:20.
Songs in red are available on the Roseville Big Band Concert in the Park (+8) CD. Songs crossed out like this were on the original list but were skipped due to lack of time. Songs in Italics were added by audience request;
audience members also requested several of the songs that were already on the play list, indicated by an asterisk(*).

We sold one CD, which was used as a door prize. Most of the audience had left by 11:40, but four people stayed until the end. This evening may have set a record for the number of subs in the band: Conrad, Debbie, Kari, Peter, Dan, Lee, and Steve were all subbing as performers. This was the first time subbing for Conrad and Debbie. We didn't have subs for Kirk or Diane. Bill subbed for Bob bringing the equipment.
