"America's Most Unsophisticated Band!"

Freddie Fisher & The Schnickelfritz Band were a great novelty band from the 1930s, pre-dating Spike Jone's debut in 1942, and if their music has a familiar sound to readers of this blog, they should - most of the members left band leader Fisher and formed the Korn Kobblers. A nice person has posted an album of Fisher & Co. songs of wildly-varying sound quality, but hey, it's free, so who can complain? Gonna have to find an album by these guys. For further study...

  1. Hi,

    My name is Alison Perkus and I work with a non-profit organization called Every Person Has A Story. At EPHAS, we share stories and connect people around the world through the power of photography. We put cameras in the hands of students around the globe and provide them with teaching and guidance. Their unique perspective provides us with a more intimate view of remote communities.

    This Saturday, September 22nd we are taking part in an all-day dance music festival to benefit the Fairlee Motel and Drive-In Theater in Vermont. The festival has a wonderful line-up of performers, starting at noon and going until 10pm. There will be DJs and a great variety of vendors as well: face-painting, jewelry, clothing, food and Every Person Has A Story.

    The theater needs $70,000 for a new digital projector, as the movie industry will no longer be making 35mm film by next year and their current projector cannot support digital film. The Fairlee Motel and Drive-In Theater is relying on their patrons, community members and this festival to help raise the funds to purchase and install a new projector.

    We're trying to spread the word about the festival, so any sort of publicity you could give to the festival would be greatly appreciated! We hope to see you there! If you would like, we can draft a press release for your website.

    To find out more information about the festival, you can visit the Fairlee Motel and Drive-In Theater website at http://www.fairleedrivein.com/savethedrivein.html, or visit their facebook at http://www.facebook.com/events/217790465014559/.
