Saturday in the Park




The flier down below there describes an annual thing we used to do with Whatever Band Ken Cadmus Was in Charge of That Year (WBKCWICOTY), the "concert in the park" in my hometown of New Providence, NJ. The pic up top is from a park gig in 1987, a few years after the one described, and we had a different name and lineup -- John Cook on bass and Julio Coto on drums. Good ol' Frankie Fachenei (help me with the spelling please, someone from that era) played sax with every version of WBKCWICOTY.

This was July. By the fall I was gone, the other guys moved on, and it was years before Ken and I could stand to be social again. But it was a good band, and it was fun while it lasted.

  1. I'm not even sure if Frankie knows how to spell his last name. Frankie went on to play with "Friar Tuck & The Home Fries". Today's whereabouts I'm not sure
