Of Interest, most likely regarding
MHS BAND students 1948-1978*
... I see the Chemical City Band is featuring Mr.Stark this summer, as I inventory summer musical events to calendar. I'm sure there are Alumni out there who, by having an intense personal connection with Mr. James Stark would take pause by this - and remember.
... The Chemical City Band honors a long time Midland musician each summer. This summer's concert series will be dedicated to the many years Mr. James Stark served..."
... I'm sorry to see The Chemical City Band is still not being asked to play for the Midland July 4th celebration before Fireworks.
I myself liked 4th of July nights best back in the days when the Chemical City Band played beneath the baseball field bleachers in Emerson Park first, then came the fireworks. Do you remember that ?
... Loh and behold Mr. Stark's (and Lee Lucas's brain-child) Blast from the Past big band - which is THEE best kept secret in town - is mentioned in the Blurb *on web page for chemcityband summer schedule.
... Mr.Stark was directing the Blast' well beyond "the 80's" though, contrary to what the statement [on above web page link] implies.
... In '89 Mr.Stark invited me to try big band vocal, along with with Blast vocalist and sound man at the time Bob Lind (husband of MHS librarian Mrs.Lind) and - I was singing for Mr.Stark well into the 90's ('am still with same band).
... Mr.Starks legacy, The Blast from the Past is great and is a dance band(!) and is not one of the 'high profile' band/orchestra/ensemble/s of Midland - if you know what I mean. Maybe it will moreso be, after this summer.
