“I showcased The Funky Kings and another group I loved, The Alpha Band, at the Arista Convention in Camelback, Arizona, in 1976. The Alpha Band consisted of players who had backed Bob Dylan on his "Rolling Thunder Revue," among them the now famous T-Bone Burnett and a young, handsome, charismatic rock violinist, David Mansfield. I really had great hopes for both bands and had them perform at the convention to encourage the rest of the company to share my enthusiasm. Both bands brought the house down.”
