Don Kinch and the Conductors. Don played cornet. John McKinnley was the plectrum banjoist. Band was based in Portland, Oregon. John McKinnley was one of the reasons why I took up the banjo when I was five years old. At the Age of twelve I took lessons from one of his students (Bill Luce). John’s son, Craig, is a great player too. In fact, they just released an album last year.
Regarding Don Kinch, he played with the Firehouse Five prior to relocating to Portland. He also played with Monte Balou and that whole gang from the Turk Murphy band. The conductors released one album which, if you can find, is fantastic. I have one and transferred it to CD.
