Rick K. and the Allnighters

“If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it 'Chuck Berry’.” — John Lennon

PAUL PLAYED in the horn section of Rick K. and the Allnighters last night, and it was a fun show. They're a hard-working band — especially Rick Kay and mad drummer, Steve Moore


Maybe being a really famous celebrity is glamorous, but being a working musician isn't; it's hard, hard work!! The band played in Princeton, West Virginia Friday night, tore down, got on the band bus and drove all night, 750 miles to Des Moines, to get here and play Saturday night.


We were lucky again. All of the musicians in the band, most especially Rick himself, were gracious and friendly. 


Saxman Bryan Shumacker's 11-year-old daughter Maddie and I hung out together and danced up a storm. I wish I'd gotten pictures of us together or at least her! She's adorable.


PS: Below the pictures I took last night 
is You Tube video of their most famous routine, and a list of Rick K. and the Allnighters' upcoming gigs in case you want to catch one.


From left to right: Paul, Bryan Shumacker, Bobby Menear who plays with the band full time,

These two, Rick Kay and Steve Moore, do a hilarious routine to Wipe Out.


Studying his music.
