Memories of Reagan

It isn’t often that I can claim any kind of connection with world leaders, but when I learned of the passing of Ronald Reagan, I was reminded of a gig long ago where I breathed the same air as the President. The photo below was taken at a Congressional Ball (the White House version of the office Christmas party) probably around 1985. I was quite touched that the White House thought enough of the entertainment to have these pictures taken and distributed to members of the band.

That’s me on the left... the guy with the beard at the drums. Shaking hands with Nancy Reagan while the Gipper applauds us is Mike Carney. In the foreground is Colleen Casey. (click image for a larger version)
