The best place for band to enter would be through the far north doors. The first set of doors says lounge, the 2nd set says ballroom, the 3rd set (north door) doesn't say anything - this is the door we should use. 
Wear a black suit or tux with the band's blue ties and cummerbunds.

Led by Glen Newton

48 people attended the dance.

*Dan Theobald and Mike Wobig arrived during the 7th song of the first set. 494 closure had delayed them. (Dan was originally slated for the solo on Little Brown Jug. He was able to set up quickly after arriving.) On "I Can't Give you Anything But Love", Glen played a bass part on the piano while Ann played the regular piano part. On the rest of the first 7 songs, either Ann had the bass part in the piano music or we simply did without a bass. Before the 8th song, Glen introduced the saxes, trumpets, and trombones to the audience, to give Mike time to set up.
