Don't forget about Bob Havens and Henry Cuesta - also showing their star talent and trad jazz chops on Welk.  And Big Tiny Little, JoAnn Castle, and many other talented folks. Lawrence Welk LOVED dixieland!  He showcased it every opportunity he got.  We need another Lawrence Welk!  

And of course Pete Fountain, Art Depew, Dick Cathcrt, etc.
Bob Havens used to take lawrence Welk to the various Jazz Society’s Sunday sessions. He loved to go.
