New Cruise:
Jack Melick and his musicians will be hosting another of their annual cruises on February 21st, out of New Orleans.  It is a seven day river cruise up the Mississippi on the paddle wheel boat: "Queen of America".   AAA is handling the details and our agents there are Mr. Jack Hornaday and Ms. Terry Grant. We will visit such places as Natchez and Vicksburg, and return to New Orleans on March 1st.  As usual, Jack and the musicians will play for three private parties at which only the people travelling with their group will be attending.
Call Mr. Hornaday or Ms. Grant at 972-926-1535 for further info and cruise costs.
