Seattle Banjo Club Gazette         February  2005


Editor's Corner

Time for the editor to get on the soap box for 2005. The editor and publisher of the Gazette wants to endorse the urging in the president's message, to smile at the audience and look like we're having fun as we play. This will be contagious and the audiences will get more enjoyment from our performances. It will take a little effort on our part since most banjo players are concentrating so hard on reading the music, or on the beautiful sound from our banjo, that we tend to forget all about the audience.
