CROWD PICTURE FROM JACOBS PAVILION at NAUTICA


Recommended Posts

Hello!!!  There used to be a picture of the crowd at the Raspberries reunion show at the Scene pavilion or whatever it's called now but I cant find it anywhere on the website.  Would anyone happen to have it and could they post it here?

Thanks so much!!!!

Mick

Susie, interestingly, the singing voice of Ken on this record was done by Bill Cunningham and he died 2 weeks ago today at the age of 96.  He was the original voice of Ken in 1961. (not to be confused with the photographer, Bill Cunningham, who died in 2016).  The voice of Barbie on this record was done by actress/singer Charlotte Austin, daughter of singer/composer Gene Austin. According to Google, she is still alive at 89 years old. Just a few fun facts I had looked up after hearing Cunningham had died.Screenshot_20230729_111715_Chrome.thumb.jpg.fc8f7802bd36dbd1873868c4c53eb4d8.jpgScreenshot_20230729_111851_Chrome.thumb.jpg.cc1dec883ecaf41f435899fdfbfe542d.jpg

Yes!

I read Matthew's post and learned about Bill Cunningham.

Thought it would be a fun post to share.

Thank you for the info on Charlotte Austin as well as the other Ken.

😊

The real news about Barbie and Ken was posted in my November 2012 “Lewsletter”

On the Raspberries front, if any of you attended any of the band's reunion shows, you probably would have noticed the little Barbie and Ken dolls always prominently seated on stage with the band...Unfortunately, at the last concert, Dave Smalley's bass guitar was set at such a high volume that the vibration from the amp( Barbie was sitting on it) caused the lady to tumble to the ground and she was transported to a nearby hospital with severe neck and head injuries...Ken held a candlelight vigil by her bed, but unfortunately, he forgot that she was plastic and she melted...Ken was convicted of "doll slaughter" and received a suspended sentence...
