For many years each spring, The Flood played one of its all-time favorite gigs, the Saturday morning breakfast session for the annual Coon-Sanders Nighthawks Bash, a gathering of traditional jazz fans in downtown Huntington. Those extraordinary players of Dixieland era music invited us to share a set of jug band tunes that come from the same happy time period. Sadly this venerable assembly discontinued a few years back, but fans missed it so much that good old Dale Jones has set up a Dixieland jam session this weekend and the Flood's on the bill! At our rehearsal earlier this week, we ran through some tunes for the set.
