Our last Band meeting with Jerry, was an emotional experience
for us all. JD was upbeat, the conversation was personal, however
his desire to leave a lasting legacy was noted
we've kept the band working, maintaining a "Party" mood.
Entertaining the people with good music, a good beat, and a good
laugh! As JD would say "Da Tanca". We've re-touched
the style somewhat having two accordions, for this CD, But having
a concertina along with an accordion is never far from out thoughts,
Ken bought Jerry's White Star Concertina, and has been working
on some tunes.. We are very proud of this CD and look forward
to producing another "LIVE CD/DVD real soon, we look forward
to hearing from our fans throughout the Country and making new
ones. "Keeping Polka Music Alive"
