During The Vietnam War, The ''Red Garter ''at'' The Texas Tavern in Sydney,'' was set up to entertain U.S troops on R&R leave, Down Under . With a foot tappin' banjo band , lots to drink, and wild wild women , it was all a bloke could ask for. Here's a couple of tracks off an LP, I aranged back in 1970 called ''The Red Garter Revue''-- They were wild times !!!

Boy, did that take me back. I spent many an evening at the RG in Chicago in the 60's, then ended up playing at Your Father's Mustache, also in Chicago, in '67. Fun years!
