T.J. Tomlin Dixieland All-Stars

T.J. is the son of legendary songwriter Pinky Tomlin and has been in the music industry for over 40 years, performing with Bobby Hackett, Les Brown, Al Hirt and many others.

T.J. was the drummer for the U.S. Navy Show Band in Washington, D.C. from 1966-1968, as well as for the U.S. Navy Jazz Band at the Naval Station, San Diego, CA from 1968-1970. While living in San Diego, T.J. was the musical contractor for the prestigious Hotel de Coronado and the San Diego Sports Arena from 1970-1974.

T.J. returned to New York in 1975, where he worked with many different Club Date offices, as well as with his own Trio, Quartet, Dixieland Band, Swing Band, Big Band and Club Date Band. T.J. and his groups supported Broadway theater productions and major performers at the Nanuet and Darien Dinner Theaters.

T.J. Tomlin Dixieland All-Stars were featured by Jazz Forum Arts for many years, aboard N.Y. Waterways ferries in our Hudson River Music Fest. Enjoy them here on land at beautiful Waterfront Park in Dobbs Ferry as they kick-off our 13th season

The City of Yonkers and Town of Greenburgh have decided conduct a joint reassessment of all properties. We anticipate that we will save substantial dollars. Interns from Berkeley College, paid for with a federal grant, will be working the Assessor’s office – entering data into the computer which will be used for the reassessment. We expect to save about $50,000 a year – thanks to this initiative.

Save the date: community outreach meeting to discuss Game on sports bubble proposed lease at Frank’s nursery on Dobbs Ferry. Wednesday, JULY 18 at 7 PM. Raindate: July 19th. Meeting will be on site. The draft lease should be posted on the town website sometime next week.

The NY State Legislature will make a decision on the town’s proposal to lease our tennis courts to use during off season months (tennis bubble) sometime next week. State Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins and Assemblyman Tom Abinanti have introduced this important state legislation before their legislative bodies.
