5:30 PM to 7:30 PM the evening of Saturday, October 17th at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, Ft. Lauderdale ILADS Conference An Evening of Musical Entertainment: Jammin’ Jazz will be held outdoors on the Ocean Terrace overlooking the ocean. Contingency plans to hold the event indoors have been made in the event of inclement weather.
Kenneth Liegner is organizing the event with the assistance of Dennis Yerry, Musical Director. We are hoping for this to be a participatory and fun event and all conference attendees are invited to attend the event, limited only by the capacity of the venue (200+ persons). Persons attending the ILADS conference can indicate when signing in if they would like to attend. Conference non-registrant guests can attend for a nominal charge.
This is a call for those attendees who have musical abilities to contact us if they would like to participate in the musical performance. If attendees have particular songs or pieces that they enjoy performing, they can be submitted for consideration. The musical content will be limited to Jazz, Blues and ‘The Great American Songbook”. Dennis will need to ‘vet’ the skills and abilities of those who may be interested to determine their level of skill & ability. Final decisions on choice of music and participants will be at the discretion of the Musical Director. He will be providing charts for the music that is ultimately selected for the evening and share these with participants (in the appropriate key signatures for the different types of instruments that the participants play). There will be a rehearsal the evening of Friday, October 16th.
We are hoping this can be a ‘fun’ event for all as well as a ‘bonding’ experience.
If you have an interest in participating as a performer in our planned Evening of Musical Entertainment: Jammin’ Jazz please send an e-mail expressing your interest to: contact@ILADS.org

Conflict of Interest:
ILADS encourages the open exchange of scientific information. Opinions of individual participants in ILADS programs do not necessarily reflect those of ILADS. Individual treatment practices vary widely, and different medical societies hold different views on how best to approach the treatment of patients with tick-borne diseases generally. We urge you to become acquainted with the relevant research to inform your decisions. Participants are advised to use their own clinical judgment when treating patients.
Please refrain from wearing fragrances as a courtesy to those with chemical sensitivities. Thank you.
ILADS reserves the right to dismiss any registrant without cause at the discretion of the Program Chair or the ILADS staff person in charge. No refunds will be given. No registrant is allowed to audio or video tape any of the proceedings without prior permission.
