You are invited to JOIN --
The Jazz-a-belles were formally organized as a result of several years of strutting together in St Paddy’s Day parades at the Pass and with the spirited establishment of Jazz in the Pass in 1999.
Sparked by the Lark – Lark Johnson, that is – the group of ladies adapted a uniform dress of Black and White costumery with ornately designed Jazz umbrellas. It’s a wonderful sight to see nearly 20 ladies doing the traditional Second Line strut. Where ever they go, crowds mill around and are harangued into joining at the back of the line with flowing handkerchiefs in mimic of a good old New Orleans style Jazz funeral.
Lead Strutter, Lark Johnson exuberantly explains that, “We love a parade and love to be in any parade that has jazzed-up music.”
Many of the members are an outgrowth from the Newcomers Club and are thrilled to join in with local natives of the Coast. The group is open to new membership and is willing to perform at any group functions along the Coast. For information, contact Lark at firstname.lastname@example.org
Only Ladies are Primary members -- but you are welcome to bring along a Spouse or Friend -- if they too, enjoy Fun, Frivolitry, and Jazz Fantasia!
