The Bonnie Castle Resort & Marina, Alexandria Bay, NY


‘GOOD BYE” DEAR JAZZ FRIENDS


IT IS WITH A GREAT DEAL OF SADNESS AND EMOTION THAT WE ARE INFORMING ALL OF OUR MANY JAZZ FANS THAT, AS OF THE LAST FESTIVAL IN MAY, 2017, WE HAVE “RESIGNED” FROM RUNNING ‘THE GRAND INTERNATIONAL RAGTIME-JASSTIME FESTIVAL’


AFTER 17 YEARS, AND 21 FESTIVALS, THIS WAS ONE OF THE HARDEST AND MOST DIFFICULT DECISIONS THAT WE HAVE EVER HAD TO MAKE. BUT, IT IS TIME FOR US.


WE CANNOT BEGIN TO THANK THE DEDICATION AND SUPPORT OF THE NUMEROUS WONDERFUL MUSICIANS WHO PERFORMED FOR US OVER ALL THE YEARS.

WE CANNOT BEGIN TO THANK THE NUMEROUS FANS WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US, AND OUR FESTIVAL, OVER ALL THE YEARS.

AND, WE CANNOT BEGIN TO THANK ‘THE BONNIE CASTLE RESORT & MARINA’ MANAGEMENT AND STAFF, WHO WELCOMED US AND SUPPORTED US, THESE LAST 9 YEARS, AND PROVIDED US WITH THEIR MAGNIFICENT VENUE. IT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST OF TIMES.


EVEN THOUGH IT’S OVER, THE MANY GREAT MEMORIES WILL LINGER WITH US FOREVER, THE FRIENDSHIPS WILL REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER, AND THE JOY AND LOVE THAT WE FELT FOR ALL OF YOU WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US.

THANK YOU ALL, SO VERY MUCH, FOR WHAT YOU HAVE GIVEN US. “WE’LL MEET AGAIN, DON’T KNOW WHERE DON’T KNOW WHEN, BUT I KNOW WE’LL MEET AGAIN SOME SUNNY DAY!”


GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!


Wayne & Nancy Pauli
