Vann Walls
Instrument: piano
Group: Vann Walls and his Famous Rythm Notes
Description: "At the Trocaveria, shows went six nights a week in the late 1940's. We played nice smooth music with a Duke or Count feel. Vann Walls was a happy supportive person who arranged most of the music, because the out-ot-town floor show groups rarely brought written music with them"
