He used that banjo with the Whiskey Hill Singers. I saw them twice, once it a nightclub in Greenwich Village and then at Forest Hills, where they opened for Johnny Mathis. I had the chance to have a nice long chat both times, and he remembered me and called me Mac.
They were much, much better live than on that awful record.
: Interesting, Mac. I wonder if anyone has audio
: or video, or knows what song they're doing.
: It almost has to be a shot from Dave's
: Place, and 1965 was the only year that show
: aired. It's interesting that Dave is playing
: a resonator banjo that looks like a Gibson,
: instead of his Vega. (I wonder if it's the
: same one he played at the reunion concert).
: It's also interesting in light of the fact
: that I don't think Judy left the WHS on
: great terms with Dave. Didn't he fire her
: and replace her with Liz Seneff?
