In Memoriam

In memoriam: Bart Strohl, who played trumpet, trombone, and euphonium for Die Polka-schlingel for almost 20 years. Bart passed away October 12, 2001. Bart loved music and imparting the love of music to young people. His passing leaves the band poorer in wit and musicianship. Who else could sing "Just Because" the way Bart did? In memoriam: Fred Leach. Fred drummed for many jazz groups around Albuquerque and we were fortunate to have him hit the skins for us for a time.
Dave Judd In memoriam: Dave Judd, one of the founding members of the band a member for over 30 years. Eerste Klarinette und alto sax.
