    Memories: Just a teenager, but Jack Amlung would let me sit in with his orchestra (late 50's).

  2. I imagine you have a lot of good memories centered around your music, Ramsey. Sitting in with Amlung's orchestra must have been a huge honor.

    Ramsey, I found this reference to Jack Amlung's playing at the Baker: The Baker's 11th floor offered the celebrated roof garden with its expansive hardwood dance floor and a band area where Lawrence Welk, the JACK AMLUNG ORCHESTRA and others performed. (You may have been there with them!)
