Koerner, Ray & Glover Photos Dave and John Koerner at the Avant Garde, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dec 27, 1963 or Jan 04, 1964. Jim Barker and Harold Strohmier ran the Garde for many years. Besides Koerner, Ray and Glover, Skip James, Son House, most of Chicago's old guard, Reverend Robert Wilkins and many others played the Prospect Avenue club. Note the home-made wing-nut capo on Dave's Carl Holzapfel guitar, purchased from Erik Darling. Unseen on John's Army-Navy guitar is the extra tuning peg for the seventh string, a doubled G tuned in unison. That might be the same pickup John is still using. Dave didn't fool with electricity in those days. We narrowly missed a Burma Shave endorsement for Cleanest-Shaven Men in America ad campaign.

They sounded great and are appropriately named since they are the quietest band I've ever heard on the 1st Ave stage. I think their moms made them turn down when they were practicing. Good material and a fine delivery. I say this because I want them to know that, like Koerner, Ray and Glover, if you just hang in there for forty years or so, you, too, can headline at a big club.
