The East Bay Banjo Club gave a two-hour performance January 16 to about 100 people at the annual Live Oak Lodge crab feed at the Oakland Masonic Auditorium.
The audience dined and chatted while EBBC played many of its most popular numbers. Banjo players were Garry Kerr, Phil Myers, Linda Myers, Tom Brunetti, Chris Lardge, Ardie Jarrett, Kit Nelson, Betty David, Karen Hefter, Sheila Welt, Don Granberg, Bob Ehrhorn and John Greitzer. Bassists were Guy Black on electric and Terry Horner on gutbucket. Vocals were handled admirably by Kit Nelson, Sheila Welt, Don Granberg, Chris Lardge and Bob Ehrhorn. Karen Hefter and Phil Myers took solos on some of the songs. Bob Nelson served as photographer for the event.
The club closed the show with its usual rousing version of “When The Saints Go Marching In”. Attendees at the crab feed said they enjoyed the music.
