Dave S. Trio
Dave Schumock & Gene Lawrence
Pub. Sixteen-Ten Music (BMI)
Odd rocking instrumental with accordion, sounding in some parts almost as a Cajun band !
This Mount Tahoma High School band was led by David Lloyd Schumock (1947-2008) and included Gene Lawrence. A (later?) line-up is listed in the Pacific Northwest Bands discography HERE Page has a picture of the band.
The quite obscure Birthstone label was perhaps owned by Attilio ("Art") Mineo, a jazz pianist, who, thanks to his connections in the East Coast introduced the Wailers and other Northwest acts to Golden Crest. Chance Eden, a Birthstone recording artist, was later signed by Roulette Records.
“Here was a man who knew Jacqueline Kennedy, Al Capone, Frank Sinatra, Babe Ruth, not to mention all the musical greats of the 20th century,” said Barry Johnson, a local opera singer and good friend of Mineo.
Mineo also wrote operas about the Mafia, though he made clear he wasn’t part of the official organization.
