LTWCMB 55th Anniversary Party - 2015
San Carlos

January 3, 2015

========================


The band was started on January 1, 1960, when we marched for the first time in Los Trancos Woods. To celebrate the 55th Anniversary of our founding, we threw a party for ourselves on January 3, 2015.

The following set of photos was provided by Linda Nystrom. Enjoy the pics!



[01]  Hal and John produce a little home-made music!






[02]  Kitty looks sharp with her fringed washboard!






[03]  “Groucho” Claire is in fine form.






[04]  Jan has a colorful dance routine.






[05]  Ptah plays a holiday tune on his bamboo flute.

[10]  Dave joins in the chorus.






[11]  Merele is a percussionist today!






[12]  We had some good-sounding horns in the house!






[13]  Paul wore red-white-blue for the occasion.






[14]  Jan is looking good!






[15]  Milkman wore white, as usual.






[16]  Randy has an offer you can’t refuse!






[17]  They don’t call him squeezer for nothing!






[18]  We didn’t have a lot of extra floor space for a band formation, so we settled for a surround-sound effect!






[19]  With 80 guests at the party, there was good music, good food, and good fellowship all around!






[20]  We played tunes from our extensive chart book.






[21]  Jimmy was in good form that night.






[22]  Lots of good trumpets were a treat to hear.






[23]  Jo-Ellen and Jim were very happy to be here.






[24]  Squeezer can squeeze a trumpet, too!






[25]  Claire brought her son, Jim, to the party so he could meet the band!






[26]  Our percussion section is First Class ...






[27]  ... and our brass section is second to none!






[28]  Music for parties and parades ... for 55 years!






[29]  Jim is happy to ba among friends.






[30]  Doug can sing and play at the same time!






[31]  Chris does a nice job with his Sousa.






[32]  Helen, Lou, and Jim give us a nice smile for this candid shot.






[33]  Carmen appears to be addressing us from the podium.






[34]  But here, she harmonizes with Rich.






[35]  Jay and Rich make a serious sound!






[36]  No act would be complete without a juggler in the house!






[37]  A high-powered band like ours wouldn’t be complete without Cindy’s descants.






[38]  Fortunately, we had a high ceiling so Patti could perform.






[39]  Carmen left her fruit bowl home today.






[40]  The surround-sound effect, with the high ceiling, produced a great sound!






[41]  Linda put down her camera long enough to pose with Jonathan!






[42]  Rick is sounding good!






[43]  This guy is enjoying every minute of it!






[44]  Patti can twirl on one foot!






[45]  Delightful Debbie loves the band!






[46]  Ross liked the high ceiling, too!






[47]  What a lineup! Hans, Jay, Rich, Carmen, and Harvey!
