     I am a bit behind schedule in getting my ducks rowed up. But here is my review of the latest 'Silver Bells' Christmas-Birthday Party, 2016.  First off, please know how much I appreciated receiving each and everyone.  It was Great!  The house was filled with jazz society members (past & present), a few PJAZZ Sponsors, friends, family and entertainers.  Our Special Veteran 'Guests of Honor' were accompanied by Volunteers Nolan, Brenda and Paula Moran of the Northern AZ Veterans Administration (NAVAHCS) affording me a deep satisfaction in seeing them enjoy the dinner and show.  I am sure special group invites will become a standard procedure for the future. Again, "thank you all for coming out" and remember to mark you calendar now for the date DECEMBER 17, 2017

      Below are my friends and the great entertainers that 'showed up & showed out' for all to enjoy. No pomp, just fun!

From L - R: Milt Cannon, Sherry Roberson, Royce Murray, Leslie Daniels, Don Cunningham

We all had plenty fun jammin and scatting together and then everyone left town Happy!

CANNON ACADEMY of PERFORMING ART

 
Beginning November, 1993
This studio lounge originally
located at Robert Rd. & Spouse Dr. in Prescott Valley, AZ 
was first known as the Cannon Academy of Performing Art. The academy staff of music teachers was developed for private study consisting of Patti Bell/vocals; Clare Willey/piano, 
(deceased); Mel Zelnick/drum, (deceased); Joel DiBartolo/bass-theory (deceased); Milt Cannon, saxophone. There were also clinics, master classes and (3) day 'Artist in Residence' programs with drummer Butch Miles and with the Ortega Family Ensemble, the New Mexico Mescalero Apache performers that were also featured in our 1994 Prescott College Concert in the 'Sam Hill Warehouse.' All of the Cannon Academy activities were enhanced by weekly Sunday living-room 'matinee' performances introducing various established professional performers to the Prescott Valley, AZ area beginning with Phoenix vocalist,
Sherry Roberson.
