No one will believe it's the "Blues" if you wear a suit, 'less you happen to be an old person, and you slept in it last night!

I going to add Karen Carpenter to the list.  She's widely remembered for her fabulous voice, but she was a monster on drums.  The one time I saw them in concert, she played drums the first half of the show and then came out front to sing for the second half (Cubby O'Brien was covering drums while Karen was out front).  As good as Cubby was, I would have preferred to listen to Karen on drums (Vistalites) all evening.
Working with: Second Time Around, James Curley, Scraps of Brass, The American Wind Band, and other notable Chicago musicians.

Teaching through Quinlan & Fabish Music Stores.
