Sure, Southside Chicago Seven played their 15th year at Stockdale 
Country Club in Bakersfield, California.  With the gas crisis, that our 
fearless leader is unaware of, the attendance was about 50% less than 
normal, BUT it was really cool, seeing a 92 year old piano player walk 
in with his family as he danced across the veranda with a BIG smile on 
his face.  The band played great, our bass player, a sub, for our 
regular guy who was in Canada for the week,  was the son of the 
infamous Mary Osborne, the female guitarist of the late 40s and 50's.  
If you are unsure of who she was, go to the Art Ford Jazz Concerts on 
utube.  He is an excellent bass player, but SHE was a monster.
