"Stan Kenton"
June 7-8, 1967

Jerry Zucker writes:
In June of 1967, the Pennsbury High School Concert Jazz Band played at the Circus as the opening act for Stan Kenton on 2 nights.  It was an incredible experience both to play at such a venue and to get to know Stan and the guys in his band. They couldn't have treated us any better and it gave a whole new outlook to our playing to be complimented by musicians such as these.  As best I recall, the Pennsbury band was:
John Mack - conductor
Tom Crawford, Joe Chiehowsky, Simon Dratfield, Jerry Zucker - saxes
Jim Wells, Ted Wilson, Rick Chamberlain, Fred Scott - trombones
Bob Farquer, Al Keller, Rick Oberndorfer, Rich Victor, Pat Stout - trumpets
John Wood - melophonium
Dave Richards - tuba
Doug Dana - drums
Bob Austin - bass
I'm sure I'm leaving people out and for that I apologize, but it has been a long time. Hope you enjoy this.
