thanks bubba. Those mugs probably would have been my cousins. I am a Newark, NJ native and my mothers side is very soprano like........... I actually use to get gigs as a teen in Jersey via those guys. Good pay, never any trouble in the bar, and a few vans a night would pull up filled to the roof with discounted products of all sorts. I was quite a time back then! Walter

PS: I never have joined the musicians union. I better watch out :D

The only mob guys I've ever known were either in the furniture business, or the garbage business. All Italians, which is neither here nor there. In Madison,Wi., where I grew up, the new power elite got so sick of the Italians makin' money that they tore down their so-called "ghetto" in the name of urban redevelopment, to disperse 'em. This was in the 60's, and done with government financing. They built hospitals, office buildings, parking ramps, and big roads right through their neighborhood. Alotta WASPS made money developing stuff without using any of their own money and turning it.
