That "Professor Gizmo" is none other than Rick Elmore, a very fine
trombone/tuba player from the SF Bay area! I first met him in Lodi where we
were performing at the Lodi Grape and Wine Festival. He starting to get
quite famous and wound up also playing the Calgary Stampede for several
years. *I don't know if he is still playing with Devil Mountain Jazz Band or
not, but he was superb also as "Professor Gizmo"...very entertaining!*
No Rick has moved on to other things. Glenn Calkins is now the trombonist for Devil Mountain.
Glenn was with the Golden Eagles in Southern California, and relocated to the bay area a few years back. Rick is a great talent, but I don't think his heart was in OKOM.
