December 4, 2015 meeting information

SMBMA will be meeting at the Kentuckians of Michigan on Friday, December 4, 2015, before the Kentuckians regularly scheduled Friday Bluegrass show. We are grateful to the Kentuckians for the opportunity to meet there. This serves a dual purpose, since we will be supporting a venue that presents bluegrass to the public. We will be jamming after a short business meeting until the regular show begins.

We selected this date because Hugh Fader of the Waynewood Boys is a member of the Association.

The details:

>Admission for the evening is discounted from $7 to $6 for SMBMA members.
>Bring your member card to take advantage of the discount.
>Everyone must pay the admission, this helps support the Kentuckians.
>Meeting at 5:30 p.m. and jam to follow.
>Dinner available from the Kentuckians Buffet, $9.
>Performance at 8 p.m. by the The Waynewood Boys, as scheduled by the Kentuckians, with jamming to continue between stage shows.
