Personally I was disappointed but fully understanding. Since I have a passion for music; playing saxophone in Lisle schools from 1965 through 1972, being a roadie for Dirt Farm in 1970-71 whose members were Bill Doherty lead guitar, Scott Novak drums, Paul Marek bass and Reid Schaffer vocals and played with several bands after that I took on the responsibility for the music for the 2017 AYR. The solution that I came up with was designed as a win win.
A live Alumni Rock Fest on Saturday afternoon
Background music covering the top songs of 1957 through 2017 (which Scott Novak has played a big role in pulling together).
So I designed a web page for the Lisle Alumni Rock Fest and got the word out. We have had a nice response from musicians (it seems a lot do not use facebook) but can use more. I was recently asked if a jazz combo could play and of course my reply was yes.
Hind sight being 20/20….
I probably should have called the event Lisle Alumni Music Festival. So let me make this clear all types of music style musicians & bands are welcome including:
And all ages are welcome. So far we are spanning from a group with Ray Crow - Class of 1967, Jan Stackpole - Class of 1967, John Govi - Class of 1966, Al Carter - Class of 1968, & Al Judd - Class of 1970 to a group Lorenzo Esposito who is a recent graduate.
Please share any Lisle music stories, photos, or musician leads and pass this on to others who might find it of interest.
