The Suncoast Dixieland Jazz Society, Inc. and I, would like to give a special thanks to Joan Dragon and the "Suncoast Jazz Classic, Inc." for their much appreciated assistance in helping our Society bring in two high caliber bands for both Societies to enjoy this upcoming season. 

With their generous support we are able to have "Dave Tatrow and His All-Stars" in October, and the "Pieter Meijers Quartet" in December perform for both societies.  This is being done to provide outstanding music for the members from both jazz societies, as well as, the community. These two concerts should turn out to be some of the most enjoyable concerts we have undertaken in many years. I encourage you to make your reservations early for these events, as I am sure they will sell out.

Enjoy Live Music,

Dick Maley

​Thank You.



   I don't know about you but as far as I'm concerned as long as I'm President of our jazz society, Wes Sawyer will be a member in good standing. This letter touched my heart and soul and I hope it moves you, as well.

   Thank you Wes for all that you do and all that you have done. Your are one amazing man and I appreciate you very much. If you ever want to hear a jazz band that we have scheduled to perform or any event you would like to go to, please give me a call and we will make arrangements to have someone pick you up and take you. Your spirit is what makes us want to continue to share our style of live jazz with those who love jazz.

In your service,

Dick Maley

Dear Director

   I've been trying to get this since the beinning of the year. I'm now 97, and things just don't move as fast as they used to. I haven't been able to attend and Society functions for several years. I miss the music terribly, and now turn to my collection of off-the-air tapes of Dixie Dick in his WMNF days.

   I'm sending this years dues to show my support. But now I'm sending my resignation as of the end of this year.

   I feel like I'm loosing an old friend. My sincere anks to everybody who pitched in to keep SDJS rolling. And here's hope you have success in keeping live jazz alive many years into the future.
