Hi Bob:

Received this note from Tony Sparbaro's grandson, Peter Jr.

Can you help him subscribe to the DJML, with how to access archival
information, and so on? I am also posting this to the list.

Having met Tony briefly, and gigged with people who studied drums with him,
and/or also gigged with him at Nicks, I will forward what I know about Tony
directly to Peter. I hope list mates will do the same.

Steve Barbone

PS. Peter, occasionally we all spell Sbarbaro  wrong. I sometimes put a "P"
in place of that first "B"  because I met him as "Spargo" at Nick's. :-)

Hurray the family name spelled correctly. I am ODJB'S Anthony Sbarbaro's
grandson  Peter jr and after seeing many positive posts from you and others
on the DJML on my grandfather on behalf of me and my father we thank you .
what else do you know about my grandpa as i am tiring to document as much as
possible as their is a lot of ODJB info but most is the same and if you
could offer anything as i am embarrassed to ask my emails never make it; how
do i archive that DJML list? is there an easy way to look around the site or
am i dumb!! Any war stories would be greatly appreciated as my father is 75
just heard a Phil Napoleon live at nicks album and it put a smile on his
face. Did you meet him  or do you know any  other stories i would love to
hear them as he would be 107 and not many people seem to know much about
him. Did you see him play?- he died when i was 4 so i have no recollection;
would you rank him as a good dixieland drummer or did dad tell too many war
stories!. Thanks Peter  Sbarbaro Jr. ps my father  who was a producer and
recorded buddy rich' count basie doc severonson perry como connie francis
and many others passed away on march 8 th so i really feel the need to
preserve the ODJB legacy and i found many more dixieland pictures which im
sure i could share and wonder if  and hope the people could be identified- i
live in northen nj about 2 hours from philly. Does your band play ODJB type
stuff? Thanks for the comments as i educate my older sister on  her grandpa
