DSA Meeting is Thursday, April 5th at Half Price Books

Thursday, April 5th: Jack Allday, drummer from the legendary Nightcaps is guest speaker @ Half Price Books, 6:30

You won’t want to miss the guest speaker at our April 5th general membership meeting at Half Price Books!
One of our inductee’s at this years “Dallas Songwriters Hall of Fame” program is the Nightcaps. The last surviving member is Jack Allday the drummer for the Nightcaps. An R&B/Rock & Roll band from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond. Songs you will remember: “Wine, Wine, Wine”, “Thunderbird” just to name a couple.
Jack will be in attendance and set  in with the band for a few songs at our annual April 12th “Dallas Songwriters Hall of Fame” program at Love & War.
Jack has also agreed to be the guest speaker at our April 5th general membership meeting.
I have read Jack’s memoirs of the adventures and misadventures of the Nightcaps. Just a hand full of high school kids with a garage band, their journey to stardom, and the passion for music that we all share.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and hear Jacks story of the “Nightcaps”.
