Yes! Attending Reunion

Retired from research position at University of Buffalo. Previously worked in precious metallurgy. Stay in good health and have been married for 45 years (a record for a musician). Music is my love, but always had a decent day job. Drive a 1950 Studebaker in the Summer and generally enjoy little of the high-tech. world. Retired from full-time work in 2012 in psychological research at the University of Buffalo. Currently work three mornings a week at a small library and continue to play classic (1920s-1940s) jazz in Eastern US. and Canada. Still married for 49 years. In 1984 we adopted a three month old baby from South Korea who is now all grown up and has a very successful life. She presented us with a grand-dog seven years ago.

School Story:

A happy Kenmoron. Have been playing various forms of jazz for 50 years on multiple saxophones and clarinets (one at a time!). Attended U.B. from 1966 to 1973. Favorite school....Hoover! The teachers at Ken West were the best and were better at giving knowledge then any others I ever had in college. My hat is off to them all, Especially Miss Scott (English). I was a music nerd and didn't have a lot of friends, as I lived on Grand Island. I am saddened that almost all my friends have passed on, however I have wonderful memories of playing with Tom Grenier and Tom Englert (who graduated in the Summer). Both my buddies are gone and I often think of them and K-West when I play a concert. I also played with Bob Ortolano and a few others in the rock band, the "Madmen". Credit also to John Stone, a musical genius, who played the greatest rock guitar and still lives in Kenmore. Time flies-best wishes to all.

Hi Brian, and Happy Birthday. Hopefully you will remember me from Hoover and Kenmore West. I also use to come and see you play as Dr. Jass around Kenmore in the late 1960's and saw you around Grand Island when my sister lived on Bruce Lane over there. Glad to hear you are well and still playing. Take care.
