Riverboat Razz-a-ma-Tazz

This record features some of St. Louis's greatest Dixieland and Ragtime musicians. Long a fixture of the St. Louis entertainment scene, Don and his bands have been providing quality music to Dixieland fans for over 30 years.

The musicians featured are: Don Scherrer, Pat Arana, Rick Barbaud, Mike Lacey, Glenn Meyer, Russ Polette, Rick Schaumberger, Denny Scherrer, Ken Schuppan, Ed Stemmler, and Steve Totten.

The second album from the band focuses on the popular riverboat rhythms that have become their trademark. Don is featured not only on banjo but on guitar as well on the beautiful Eubie Blake composition Memories of You. In addition to their instrumental mastery, the vocal talents within the group are many and varied. On this record we are pleased to present the talents of Denny Scherrer & Rick Barbaud (Ukelele Lady, Play A Simple Melody), the late, great Ed Stemmler (Ain't Gonna Give Nobody None of My Jelly Roll) and longtime midwest favorite Russ Polette doing his vocal imitations of Louis Armstrong and Carol Channing (Cecelia and You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You).
