Jim Ruth, the fine clarinetist out of Charlotte, will join Doug and the Band this month.

It’s been a long time, too long in fact, since  Jim  Ruth  made  the  trip  down from Charlotte  to  play  with  our  guys. We are about to rectify that.

We  first  heard  about  Jim  from  Jack Sutherland, our former trombonist from Tega  Cay.  Jack  said,  “there’s  a  new guy  in  Charlotte  who  plays  a  great clarinet  and  soprano  sax.  It  would  be fun  to  hear  Jim  and  Doug  play together.”  And  was  Jack  ever  right!  It was an exciting concert. And he’s been back several times but not recently.
