John Kirk ('53) Shares His Gift of Music

Chuck Kirkwood and John Kirk

A note from John: " I am still playing in a four piece band at various nursing homes. This photo was taken on January 24, 2012. The other fellow in the picture is Chuck Kirkwood who also plays trumpet. Our band consists of two trumpets, keyboard, percussion and tuba. We play music from the 30's to the present but mainly the "old classics". We can also play some great "old time" waltzes, polkas, etc. We usually average a couple of gigs a week traveling to most of the area nursing homes. We occasionally play some religious gigs in various churches and also for special occasions. Most of the patients in the various nursing homes really enjoy our music but the band enjoys playing music as well as the listeners."
