Dixieland Rangers rehearse “Pennsylvania 6-5000” at Del Norte Senior Center.
The Dixieland Rangers, led by retired band director Keith Jones, will be performing at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, during the Summer Concerts in the Park series in Azalea Park.
The concert will be in the park’s amphitheater and will include Dixieland and big band tunes.
After Jones retired from teaching high school band in the San Francisco Bay area, he moved to Crescent City where he found few opportunities to perform the music he enjoys — Dixieland and big band, with a little rock ’n’ roll on the side.
“When I came to Crescent City, I was interested in continuous playing, but there was a gap,” Jones said.

“If you take nothing else away from this evening — please, take Jesus home with you,” Pastor Mike Quesada said last Friday evening on the stage of Azalea Park’s amphitheater on opening day of Streets of Gold.
Quesada gave his testimony before an audience of more than 100 people who came to hear about eternal matters, such as what happens after a person dies.
A testimony is when an individual recalls the decisions and life changes that a person decides to make when calling on Jesus Christ to become their personal Lord and Savior, Quesada said.
