« on: July 05, 2017, 05:00:57 pm »
Currently Tom is in the process of formulating 'the groupings' that will
take the stage for our 'get this' NINTH STRAIGHT YEAR honoring the
Ventures.

In connection with that, our little 'dynamo' (10) year old drummer,
Danny Roberts, hailing from Paint Lick, Kentucky will be
front & center with his own band this time around.   

Let's help surround him with our finest players for the following songs:

GREEN ONIONS- Bob Spalding, Jim Bryant, John Magee
TRAMBONE- Bob Spalding, Joe Klink, John Magee
HOME- Bob Spalding, Jim Bryant, John Magee
MEET MR. CALLAHAN- Ken Arnold, Walt Stagner, John Magee
MR. MOTO- Walt Stagner, Jim Bryant, John Magee
AME NO MIDOSUJI- Walt Stagner, Bob Spalding, Jim Bryant, John Magee
BLUE MOON- Jeff & Grant Green
BLACK SAND BEACH- Jeff & Grant Green, Bob Kenney
GHOST RIDERS- Kanad & Saugata Ghose, Joe Klink
NIGHT TRAIN (WDR '64 LP version) Kanad & Saugata Ghose, Joe Klink
HOUSE OF THE RISING SUN- Kanad & Saugata Ghose, Jim Bryant

Dan isn't hard set on these tunes. If someone wants to make a suggestion for a different tune, he has plenty of time to learn it (assuming he doesn't already know it). He just wants to play with other musicians that love The Ventures.

Maria- Tom here.   Thanx for gettin' back to Walt
with the 'Night Train' clarification.   We 'pretty
much' at this point, have to stick to Danny's 'ten'
song set 'cause I've been assigning the lead parts.
Still not sure who will be playing bass or rhythm to
each song but am making 'good progress' filling out
his band.
