Presidential Musings

1 Sep 2023 6:40 PM | Patrick Keogh (Administrator)

Woke up one morning in July and looked at the CBS blues programme.

Auspiciously the first gig was Karen Lee Andrews. I couldn’t be there but the plaudits were unanimous.

July Blues Jam was hosted by the Roger Bone Band. They bluesed themselves up and came out and delivered a fabulous set that had everyone fixated or dancing -sometimes both.

And just when you though the month couldn’t get any better we had the International Blues Music Day show. A highlight of every year this was no exception. Both stages were well attended and the music was fabulous.

I want to thank the Committee, the volunteers and particularly K2 for a fabulous and smooth event.

Coming up next month is the AGM and, without this meeting every year there is no committee and no CBS.

This year the committee has reviewed our aging constitution and will be putting our recommended changes to the membership.

All positions are up for election (President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Officer Musician’s Representative, Digital Media Officer, and the new position of Volunteer Coordinator. The Committee will have some General Committee positions as well.

The proposed changes to the constitution, the AGM agenda and other documents will be circulated soon.

We have a request for volunteers from the Harmonie German Club for their upcoming Oktoberfest celebration on the weekend of 27-29 October. (see page 11 for details)

Hope to see you all at this month’s Jam which will be hosted by the fabulous Ali Penney and the Canberra Treasury.
