Welcome Clint Alguire - July 2011
Clint has graciously stepped in to replace Frank Casamento on drums. Frank was with 15 60 75 for 24 years and contributed a great deal to the success of the band. His real job as a regional marketing manager for NPR has called him to Chicago. Everyone will miss his playing and his friendship.
Clint has been drumming for 30 years. He's played with many musicians but his most recognizable playing in this area was with the Pat Sweany Band. His father was a jazz drummer. We welcome Clint and admire his willingness to begin a new direction with 15 60 75.
