Former ‘Swingster’ recalls days as traveling musician
These days, 96-year-old Bob Clark cracks jokes, tells great stories, and flirts with the staff, either from the comfort of his easy chair in his room at Park Centre in Newton or from the hallways and gathering spaces in his wheelchair.
Perhaps Clark gets his undeniable charm from his days as the pianist for Putt Kenrick and his Southern Iowa Swingsters.
“I wasn’t a rock star, but I played for a ten-piece orchestra out of Knoxville, back in the thirties,” Clark said. “(We played) modern dance music. We played all over the Midwest.”
