Comprised of about a dozen players who love the music of the 20′s and 30′s, the Vintage Jazz Society meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at the Visual Arts Center, 400 East Hickory Street in Denton, where they have a program and then a jam session.

Vintage Jazz Society members are Doug Almond, C.A. Bell, Thad Bonduris, Andy Cooper, John Cowles, David Hume, Doug Ebersole, Maristella Feustle, Ron Fink, Bill Miller, Joseph Pinson (Mister Joe), Billy Roy, Taylor Sims, Jim Staercke, Tom Teegarden,  Bob & Pat Tolman and Woody & Mary Wood.

The group ushered in live jazz at SG&T at the establishment’s Fat Tuesday Celebration in 2005, according to VJS member Joe Pinson. VJS has been the “house band” for Sweetwater’s Mardi Gras event ever since. “It’s the one live performance the Vintage Jazz Society gives each year,” said Pinson.

“Strictly Dixie,” is an ensemble of VJS members under the direction of David Hume, they play during the annual Fat Tuesday Celebration at Sweetwater Grill & Tavern, and various events throughout the year.
