Website update

Hi fellow bandspeople,

Patricia Madden and I are working on updating (and keeping updated) our website. Please send any comments or suggestions for improvements

In particular, I would like to know whether this section (with member updates, band business, rehearsal notes, and other business) is useful, or if the combination of our facebook members’ page and weekly emails cover your needs.

Also, if you have any good pictures of the band – candid or posed, current or historical – that would be good to share send them to me.  Similarly, send me any links to videos of the band’s performances, particularly recent ones, that you would like to see on our web page.
