SUGAR date change for February

SUGAR will meet at Krzysiak's on the 4th Monday of February (2/26/18) rather than the usual 3rd Monday (2/19/18).  This is a one-time change to allow SUGAR to play at St. Mary's Hospital on the 19th, so, please make note of this on your personal calendar.   -   Johnny

WASSUP4 is coming soon!

Some have had difficulty downloading the 2018 flash mob songs from Dropbox, so below is a link to a folder in Google Drive that has the songs as well. PLEASE download them and bring them along to WASSUP4, either on your tablet, or printed out. You will probably want to have a music stand, too, so be sure to pack one. The basic guideline is, "if you need it, bring it!". - JH
